Progress Report - 2008/2009
925 students from the 1st to the 12th grade.
The school has an excellent reputation in the district and there are more applications than new includings are possible. Therefore, the school building will be extended to provide a space for 2,000 students.
The big news from Jadan is that the expansion of the school building has started to the next construction phase. The school will receive 32 additional classrooms, which means that we will be able in the future to include more than 1700 students! Once the construction is completed, the building of the College will begin. This building will accommodate 700 students, who can study there until the bachelor's and master's degree.
At present we have a list of 19 villages that have requested that they be included in the Ashram school all within a radius of 20km from the Ashram. For each village that we consider we go first and talk to the villagers, check the roads, get an idea of how many students are interested and explain to the villagers our expectations regarding the studies of the students. It’s a beautiful process involving a lot of sitting, talking, drinking chai and taking in the unique scene that is life in the small Indian village.
