School Management & Operation

Value-based Education & Child Development

ADI had been managing and operating four (4) primary level schools since 2009 in remote and under-privileged areas in and around Guwahati. The schools were originally established under the structure of Jeevan Sadhana Vidya Niketan (JSVN) by Santi Sadhana Ashram (SSA).

In 2021, three (3) of these schools were handed over to an Educational Trust operated by Archana Barthakur under a NCLP program. The Basistha school at the SSA is still managed and operated by ADI with most of the financial support provided by an organization called ASHA for Education in the USA. While it is quite difficult to convince the neighboring parents community about the value of education, the dedication and self-motivation of the current schoolteachers is admirable.

The school provides a complete set of dresses, books, and midday meals for each student. The current enrollment is 50 and ADI President, together with the schoolteachers is working on an enrollment drive before the end of 2023-24 school year.
