Ananda Palli High School and Orphanage
By Dada Dharmapremananda
Ananda Palli High School is located in a remote part of India. It was started in 1970 with a small piece of land donated by local farmers who dreamt of a better education for their children and others in the neighborhood. It started with KG-1 and expanded up to 10th grade in a few years. It is now offering basic education to hundreds of children on a regular basis.
The surrounding villagers are mostly farmers and can’t afford a good education to their children. It currently covers more than 20 villages nearby and fundraising is ongoing for expansion. The school also has a residential facility which houses more than 50 orphaned children who belong to either very economically poor families or are parentless.
