Empower to Enable-Collaborative & Innovative
Quality and Affordability is the driving philosophy of all our projects, especially 'empowering the village girls' through a job oriented education. The whole program is designed to succeed through an eco-system and net-work of schools, hospitals, NGOs, volunteers, and the like.
Nurturing an ever green hope for an empowered future, the girl children from villages gather in Sarva Vidya every year to qualify with the two year Diploma in 'Patient Care'. This initiative helps them ensure that they are better prepared to face life attitudinally and financially. We are invested in an innovative approach that empowers the village community and delivers the support they need, when they need it.

Making A Difference
Out Reach Program
One Step At a Time
It all starts with reaching the girl children in their village schools, just after the exams for the twelfth standard are over, to tell them all about the higher education opportunities and Sarva Vidya's empowerment program.
Meeting Parents In Villages
Reaching The Community
At Sarva Vidya, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing the parents to highlight who we are, what their children will get, where they will learn and train, and a host of information that concerns them. This is by no means an easy feat but through community involvement, cooperation and the hard work of local NGOs and volunteers we strive to make them understand the difference that the program will make to their future.
Reinforcing Our Commitment
On the day of induction, the parents are invited to attend the first day breaking in, as also later on, the parent-teacher meets in the school. This is to promote parental involvement in the education of their children . They get to also interact with the senior classes to gain a first hand impression. With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fullfil their potential.
