Brahmi Educational and Cultural Trust a registered charity dedicated to providing meaningful education to the disadvantaged rural children.
We want to children to grow up celebrating their childhood. At Anjana we would like to focus on education they can use in their lives, exposing them to infinite possibilities of shaping their lives.
Children meet and listen to hundreds of volunteers and achievers and visitors each year, which helps them to learn by interaction.
The school programs are led by a team of extremely capable and highly motivated teachers and volunteers. Four batches of students have graduated from SSLC so far and three times we have secured 100% results.
ANJANA VIDYA KENDRA
