School for Tribals Kids
JEEYAR GURUKULAMS (School for Tribals Kids)
Jeeyar Gurukulams are making a difference in deep forest areas in Adilabad district located in Andhra Pradesh, India where many tribal people live in small groups called thandas. Making fire wood, harvesting some seeds, working and living in woods is their lifestyle. HH Sri Swamiji stepped into these naxal infested areas in 2002 and took the initiative of establishing schools to improve their standard of living.
In 2004, Jeeyar Gurukulam, first school in Allampally was established followed by one in Birsaipeta in 2005 and the third one in Katarivaripalem, tsunami hit area in May 2007. Today, these places which were deprived basic necessities, have schools with advanced computer & science labs along with dedicated and competent faculty. Many alumni of these schools are now pursuing their college education in reputed institutions in India. Watch the video below to know more about the Jeeyar Gurukulam for tribals.
