Isha Vidhya is an endeavor of tremendous magnitude. But taking on seemingly impossible tasks is nothing new for Isha Foundation, which has experience initiating many humanitarian efforts across the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. These efforts include:
- Action for Rural Rejuvenation
- Isha Crafts (www.ishashoppe.com)
- Project Green Hands (www.projectgreenhands.org)
A social outreach project designed to revive rural Indian crafts and empower rural women by offering them free contemporary craft training, avenues to market their products and a chance to earn a livelihood.
The Isha team understands the challenges and obstacles it must surmount to achieve the objectives of an enormous rural education project like Isha Vidhya. With experienced volunteer networks developed through other Isha projects, the Isha Vidhya team has the strong support necessary to make the project a success.
