Educating Children, Empowering Generations
Adani Foundation post analyzing the dearth of a good school for the underprivileged kids in the Bhadreshwar region in Gujarat, established Adani Vidya Mandir, Bhadreshwar in the year 2012.
The main objective behind the establishment is to provide the deprived kids in the community with quality education and learning experience. The uniqueness of the school lies in the fact that it provides completely free of cost education to the students who are mostly coming from the adjoining fisher-folk communities.
Since most of the students coming to AVMB are first generations school goers, various activities are organized to sensitize the parents about the structure of education provided. Community participation is seen to be of utmost importance to ensure continued enrollment in the school. A number of interesting activities and community based programs are organized where parents can come and be a part of it. Such activities along with the value based curriculum help the student acquire academic competencies and at the same time they remain rooted to their family structure and community values.
Once, during the occasion of father’s day celebration at AVM-B, Karsan Bhai, a parent of a bright student, Muskaan, had entered the school for the first time. He says, “I could not believe that Muskaan, my daughter was able to recite such a beautiful poem. It is such a delight for me to see her evolve and grow at so many levels through her learnings from the school. The education so provided not only helps her excel academically but is also making her a better person with every passing day”.
