Gurukulam Logo small

We are so excited to announce the launch of our project ‘Gurukulam’ which will aim at establishing a first of its kind special school with a difference. In blending the traditional Gurukulam based teaching approaches to differently abled children, and to those children who wish to study in a stress free environment following a curriculum at their own comfortable pace, the Village of HOPE foundation would have taken a leap forward in bringing out the best in the students under its care.

We are currently looking out for suitable location and staff for this project. If you would like to be involved, please contact us. We also require your support through prayers and through donations to make this project successful and to have it implemented as soon as possible.
