The Mahatma Gandhi Global Indian Eklavya School
" If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.”
We believe that education is the biggest gift we can give to a child or a family because it provides them an opportunity to break free of the chains of poverty and aspire to fulfill their dreams.
The Mahatma Gandhi Global Indian Eklavya School is a tribal school situated in Western India's tribal area at Tilakwada, about 65 km from Baroda, India. The school was a result of a suggestion given personally by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, requesting GSF to undertake education in the remotest part of India. The Late Dr. LM Singhvi (Founding President of GSF), Prof. MGK Menon (Present President of GSF) and Justice C S Dharmadhikari (Vice President of GSF) decided to take the Tilakwada tribal school as a concept to bring in education excellence for the tribal students. The school is a joint initiative of the Singapore based Global Schools Foundation and the Government of Gujarat. The school is fully funded by the state & central governments.
The “spirit of giving” doesn’t simply end here. We continuously seek meaningful ways to participate and give back to the communities we serve. We provide scholarships for underprivileged children, teacher training and professional development and mentoring for school leaders. This is our commitment to convert “education for all” into actual action.
