Plans include the establishment of NERI (Neohumanist Education Research Institute) in the Mumbai area. “Inner Ecology and Outer Ecology” programs will be developed and materials for teacher training will be published. Shubhendu Prabhu is the coordinator.
Dr. Shambhushivananda also visited the neohumanist school in Noida and inspired the teachers to delve more deeply into the essence of neohumanist educational philosophy and practices.

The school is under the directorship of Mrs. Tishya Mathur who built this institution.
