Education In India
SKS has founded Bodhi Schools way back in 2010. For closer monitoring and also for efficient compliance with Right To Education Act of Government of India, SKS has carved out a separate non-profit Society by name "Bodhi Educational Society".

All SKS Education initiatives have been transferred to Bodhi Society since 2012 April.

                     Quality education continues to be expensive in India.  A significant divide exists between those who can afford quality private education and those who can’t. While the government is taking strategic steps to increase access to education to all children in India, it will require massive overhaul of the government delivery systems to guarantee quality.

SKS Bodhi Academy



While working closely with poor households in India, SKS has identified a huge demand for quality education. To find meaningful ways to serve this gap, SKS has initiated a private school chain program to design and demonstrate a successful scalable model in rural education. The impact is visible everywhere with children of poor families walking into Bodhi Schools and getting quality education on par with their better off peers in villages. Bodhi hardly collects 4 US$ per child every month, subsidizing lion's share from its own resources. Bodhi Teachers are well trained and are best resource pool in the market.



Mission
  • To educate to empower the poor.
Vision
  • To reach out to 2 million poor and needy children through school and vocational education.
Values
  • Right focus : Child First
    The child is the center of Bodhi system. Everything is created keeping the child as the focal point to ensure the best in class learning experiences for Bodhi children.
  • Right means : Empathy Always
    The academy places highest value to treating all concerned with empathy – the children and the staff
  • Right way : Consistent Quality
The consistent effort is to ensure high quality education across all Bodhi academies irrespective of location and language. This is to be achieved through standardized class processes, teaching approach, content and methods.

History

SKS piloted the concept of English medium budget schools by setting up 25 learning academies in 2008/2009. The effort was focused to understand parental expectations and demands and also find solutions to challenges in delivering quality education in rural India at scale. The effort was to create a more process based school system to deliver standardized quality irrespective of variances in location dynamics and teacher quality across remote locations.

Out Reach












Today, SKS runs 60 such academies (preschools and primary schools) with 3000 students, 200 staff across 200 villages and Peri-urban centers of Nalgonda, Medak, Warangal and Khammam districts of Andhra Pradesh. The program has grown over 6 times in student enrollment in 2010.

In April 2011 a separate Society by name "Bodhi Educational Society (BES)" was formed and all School Education Activities of SKS NGO are transferred to BES for a focused work on this important thematic area of development.
