Vivekanda Educational Trust / Gnanajyothi International School was founded to help rural children, especially girls, to integrate into society and contribute to it. Due to the peoples' mindset it is hard to develop the rural area. Our founding members believe that through education many positive changes can be made to improve the life of children and local community.
So we decided to start our own school in 2016 at Bhuvanahalli to provide quality education to local children and those who live close to the village. It’s also applicable under Right education Act.Our target groups are farmers family, middle class, minorities and community children.

eaching basic English
