Children's education

The SEDS school operates out of the SEDS campus and provides a good quality education to children from the surrounding villages. The school follows the Andhra Pradesh State Board prescribed syllabus and uses English for the medium of instruction. In keeping with our environmental focus, hill-top field visits, ecology lessons, stage plays and songs with a conservation theme all an important part of the coursework.

The school has more than 50 children at present with a capacity to expand up to 160 students. With a class size of 20, the school has so far supported more than 600 sponsored students. Attached to the school, the SEDS hostel provides a safe and clean environment for children whose domestic environment may not be conducive to learning. The hostel facility has helped improve attendance rates and ensure the continuing education of several students who would otherwise have not been able to finish their schooling due to family circumstances.

The SEDS school is looking for volunteers with teaching experience who are interested in transforming the lives of rural children through education. A minimum of 6 month’s commitment is required for a teaching internship at SEDS. We also hope to establish an endowment fund that will provide for the needs of the school in the years to come.
