Education

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 program into its fold.   Education program 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 programs of government/ various NGOs to improve the literacy rates.  We should analyze 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 who 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 from home. IDF promotes right to "right education".

Indian Development Foundation (IDF) has found a method to remove this barrier by opening up `Education Program' OR `Bal Gurukuls' in India.  From a humble beginning of 5 students in a tribal area of Karjat, IDF now covers over 8500+ students in India under this empowerment program.

COFE PROJECT - BANGALORE

IDF Centre of Excellence is a holistic sustainable development model. The first project will be started in Bangalore. The initial cost of construction have already raised from various supporters/ Samaritans including students who gave small coins. IDF will be launching the Centre by March 2015 and dedicate it to the nation. We seek your kind support and financial assistance for this noble project. IDF CofE will be a great boon for empowering the youth of India through skill development. It will be a kind of finishing school for the graduates/ engineering students, make them job-ready and enhance their employability. The three-storey CofE at Bangalore will also be a multi-faceted facility catering to different social projects. (Ground Floor – IDF Bal Gurukul to teach children in the neighbouring area, First Floor – Leprosy/ TB/ Health research wing, Second Floor – State-Of-The-Art Training Hall and Third Floor – Women Empowerment and Adult Education Cell.) IDF CofE will be a great gift to the nation.
