Thought Behind the School

The Kerandimal Education Trust (KET), a 22-year old, registered NGO in Kankia has various activities and achievements. After attaining so many milestones the Trust has decided to manage and run a school in Kankia.  The name of the school is Gram Vikas Residential School. It is a model for the formal education of both boys and girls from Class III to Class X. This is especially for Scheduled Tribe and Scheduled Caste children though there are a few students here who belong to General Castes as well.

We face many challenges throughout the year but still, we are stuck with our duty. The patience, devotion, and supportive environment created by the teachers here for 

their wards are remarkable as most of the students come from the backward tribal communities in Ganjam, Gajapati, and Kalahandi districts.
