Vidyalaya (Residential School Campus)
Our residential school campuses will empower children most in need to blossom and thrive.
Our founder’s mission of empowering the children of rural India through value-based education remains our driving force as we continue to expand our reach and offer greater numbers of children every opportunity to develop their full potential – and that of the nation.
Our experience over the last 22 years has validated our belief that by reaching children during their most critical developmental years, we can have the greatest impact. It’s this experience that has inspired an unprecedented and innovative new approach to extending our reach – residential school campuses.
“In this world, there is nothing more sacred and precious than knowledge (vidya).”
Swami Dayananda Saraswati, AIM for Seva Founder
Raising Empowered Children
Our Vidyalaya – A Home for Knowledge
Each AIM for Seva Vidyalaya (residential school campus) will bring together a school and a boys’ hostel and girls’ hostel on one campus. Our school will offer our proven value-based curriculum to 1,500 deserving children each year – children who wouldn’t otherwise have access to a formal education. This groundbreaking new direction will deepen our reach into underserved areas of rural India and offer students from grades K-12 the benefit of highly qualified teachers truly invested in their success, allowing them to achieve greater school performance, acceptance into college, and fulfilling employment.
Our Hostels – Homes for Children
Our boys’ and girls’ hostels will serve as a nurturing home away from home for our children, providing a fully supportive environment and immediate access to quality education. These free student homes will each serve 100 children and provide …
- Nutritious meals
- Clothing, uniforms and school supplies
- Academic tutoring
- Enriching extracurricular activities
- Culturally significant teachings and celebrations
The hostel setting allows AIM for Seva to strengthen each child’s foundational values, instilling discipline and the concept of seva, and preparing them for a fulfilling career and life.
“When my wife, Bimla, and I were introduced to AIM for Seva and witnessed their extraordinary work, we knew that this was the investment we needed to make. We were so moved by their noble people with hearts for serving others and their efforts to transform the lives of underprivileged children of rural India. AIM for Seva’s vision of nurturing, educating and empowering these children is materializing every day, and producing confident, hardworking young men and women with strong morals and a desire to give back.
We could not think of a better way to honor our parents than by sponsoring a school and two hostels in their homeland of India. To know that these facilities will give deserving children the care and education they need to develop and thrive is most fulfilling.”
