IDF Bal Gurukul
Education is of prime importance. IDF Bal Gurukul projects are a success proven sustainable development model. IDF in its diversified objectives has included village development and education programmes into its fold. Education programme is the nodal point for village development too. In a way, it provides an opportunity for the children to guide their parents on what they have learnt.
There are several ongoing programmes of government/ various NGOs to improve the literacy rates. We should understand that there are many first time school-goers in a family. In such cases, the parents are not able to guide their wards on education matters. There are families who with great difficulty send their children to government schools. Those of whom are capable monetary-wise provide their wards with tuition facilities. However, there are still several children attending schools but do not get proper educational guidance at home. IDF promotes right to "right education".
Indian Development Foundation (IDF) has found a method to remove this barrier by opening up `Empowerment Programmes' OR `Bal Gurukuls’ in India. From a humble beginning of 50 students in a tribal area of Karjat in Maharashtra and Langadiyawas village in Rajasthan, IDF now covers over 15000+ students in India under this empowerment programme/ Bal Gurukuls.
