Our Journey So Far

Ved Vignan Maha Vidyapeeth Trust, a sister organisation of The Art of Living, is a non-profitable educational charitable trust that aims to kindle the spirit of cherishing and celebrating life in every individual. In India, where there are still many areas where children don’t go to school, VVMVP aims at empowering, bringing smiles and spirit of celebration to the children from low socio-economic backgrounds by providing free quality education. This initiative was started by providing education to underprivileged rural children in Udayapura Village on the outskirts of Bengaluru, Karnataka. Today, The Art of Living Schools provide value-based, holistic education for no-cost. We have our Reach to over 58,000 students in 435 schools across 20 states of India in the slum, tribal and rural belts where child labor and poverty are widespread. Inspired by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar’s vision of value education for all, these schools impart education integrated with values.

   A smile is an expression of joy and celebration. Happy and smiling children not only infuse a smile on our faces but also is a sign of a healthy and happy society. Each one of us cherishes this smile and wants to spread this.

Gift A Smile is a fund raising project for the Art Of Living Free Schools that provides free value-based holistic education for the underprivileged children, thus bringing smiles in their lives.

The Foundation needs your support to make a difference in the lives of many children and families that are currently coping with this heartrending condition.

You can make one of your best charity in supporting these children. Your charity will gift an education to a child and change a life. This will also lead to an increased literacy rate in India.
