Poverty Alleviation and Education

Shanti Bhavan is a home and exceptional school located in rural Tamil Nadu, India, for the region’s most socially and economically disadvantaged children.

The non-sectarian school follows a completely unique and innovative model of combating poverty, educating the poor and fighting social injustice. Admitting students at the age of four, Shanti Bhavan provides a holistic, high quality education until the age of 17 free of cost, and subsequently funds college education for its students. No other model of educational intervention commits the same level of long-term and quality investment in the lives of the children it serves, or holds more promise for their futures and those of their families.
