What is Bal Gurukul?
Bal Gurukul Program is a unique initiative born out of our commitment to ensuring every vulnerable child has access to transformative education. Established in 1987, our Child Education Program has been dedicated to preventing children from dropping out of mainstream education. However, as our community has grown, so has the challenge of reaching every vulnerable child. In response, the Bal Gurukul program emerged as a powerful solution.
Our Child Education Program, initiated in 1987, has tirelessly worked to prevent vulnerable children from dropping out of mainstream education. However, with the community’s recent growth, we recognized the need to reach every single vulnerable child. The Bal Gurukul program was conceived as the answer to this challenge.
The Bal Gurukul program is designed to cultivate student leaders, known as “Bal Gurus,” who take on the responsibility of educating younger vulnerable children in their community. This approach not only imparts transformative, value-based education and skills to those who may lack access but also ensures that sustained community development is led by these emerging child leaders. Through this, the program aims to develop their character, leadership skills, and self-reliance.

Promoting Early Leadership
Children from the Remedial Education Project are trained as Gurukul Office Bearers and Faculty to develop leadership skills.
Gurukul Office Bearers and Faculty engage in community-based teaching activities to reach out to other vulnerable children.
Community Development Projects
The Gurukul team initiates various community development projects to address broader issues.
Children from grade 4 onwards are encouraged to enroll as Gurukul Faculty members. They undergo training in leadership, management, and technical teaching skills. These child educators then mobilize other community children to join the program.

A team of supervisors and office bearers is elected from the faculty members, managing and supervising Bal Gurukul activities. Departments, each with heads and faculty, focus on specific areas like academics, character building, sports, yoga, performing arts, IT, skills, gender studies, and the environment.
