Ananda Marga School at Kithandur was started in the year 1991 in a very economically backward village, providing English based teachings. Almost 50% of the children are sponsored fully with books, clothes and other basic things by individual sponsors, companies, organizations, and partly by the India government.
During this academic year 2015-2016, an annual school day function was organized to celebrate its 25th year with a grand cultural evening with various songs, dance drama, rhyming dance and songs.
This school is greatly indebted to its principal, Ac. Cinmayananda Avt. who has been posted here since its inception. He is responsible for the successful Medical Camp as well as other relief activities and has organized seminars and classes for all-round development.
At this school day function one set of clothes was distributed to each student and each member of the teaching and non-teaching staff and prizes were given for sports events of this academic year. On this occasion also, Shrii Nagaraju, a member of Ananda Marga from Gottahalli village, spoke briefly about the Ananda Marga Ideology and its service chapters throughout Kolar diocese. We are very grateful for all the parents and guardians who joined to make this event a grand success.
This particular area of Karnataka state is declared a drought affected area. So far we have been able to find a few generous sponsors to encourage several students through our institutions for their education. There are many opportunities to sponsor the education of hundreds of small kids but due to lack of funds, we are unable to adopt as many as kids as we would like. So we make appeal to interested philanthropist to encourage us to serve & utilize our energy to the utmost.
