About Ekal Vidyalaya
Ekal helps run over 102,000 schools that educate 2.8 million children in rural, remote parts of India. Ekal Canada is a registered Canadian charity / non-profit organization engaged in the education of tribal, indigenous children in rural India and Nepal. It is the largest grassroots movement of its kind in the world. Ekal Canada has zero administrative cost due to generous donation support from Narendra and Hardip Shah Foundation/Shah Financial Planning Inc. This means 100% of the proceeds from your donations go towards Ekal’s programs.
Ekal’s mission is the holistic development of villages through basic education, digital literacy, skill development, health awareness, modern sustainable agricultural practices and rural entrepreneurship. The vision of Ekal Vidyalaya (single teacher schools) is to facilitate the process of empowering communities based on the concept of social, economic and gender equality.
The Ekal movement aims to eradicate illiteracy from tribal areas of India and Nepal through rural development based on the criteria of equality, diversity and inclusion across all sections of society.
