Tribal Hostel

Realizing the educational backwardness of the tribal population of Kalahandi, a tribal hostel of 200 boys is being run in the premises of Shree Ramakrishna Ashrama under the scheme of financial assistance to VOs working for the welfare of STs from Ministry of Tribal Affairs, Government of India. Free lodging, boarding and coaching facilities to all the beneficiaries of the Hostel have been provided. Apart from this, they are provided with study materials like text books, note books, paper etc. as per their requirement. They are also given nutritious food, mosquito nets, blankets, medicines and different kinds of sports materials to improve their health standards and physical fitness. Out of the 200 Hostel strength, 150 students are enrolled in Vivekananda Vidyapitha run under our organization from class I to VIII at Motaganda, which is an innovative school with vocational training at grassroots level apart from their elementary studies. The rest 50 students are enrolled in the nearby Govt. run U.P.M.E & High School. The Hostel of our Ashrama encourages the Rural Tribal to continue the studies of the drop out children, which help in growth of the education in Kalahandi District. During the educational year 2019-20, all the students have passed out.
