PARIKSHIT LAL ASHRAMSHALA

Location: Gandhi Ashram 
Students : 105 (Boys and Girls)

Mahatma Gandhi established the Gujrat Harijan Sevak Sangh in 1932 to give impoverished children a value based education. Under this organization, Padmashree Ishwarbhai Patel started the Parikshitlal Majmudar Ashramshala in the Sabarmati Gandhi Ashram in 1979. This was one of his first efforts to educate the neglected and downtrodden sector of society. Manav Sadhna has been supporting and strengthening this hostel since 1989. From its onset, the Ashramshala hostel has aimed to improve the lives of children, mainly from the Valmiki community, through value base education and life skills. Manav Sadhna continues to support this mission. The Valmiki community is generally associated with sweeping and civic sanitation; they are often discriminated against and seen as outcastes of society.

Currently there are 105 children living at the hostel who are enrolled at Mahatma Gandhi Ashram Primary School in standards one to eight. The children at the hostel are given admission, uniforms, school bags, books, notebooks and useful equipments free of cost. Manav Sadhna also provides tuition classes with the support from The Mehta Family Foundation, Huston. Manav Sadhna has currently appointed 5 teachers to run the tuition classes. These teachers support the children in education and also run extra curricular classes as a way to encourage creativity and develop upon essential skills, such as leadership, communication and listening. Extra curricular activities include Arts and Crafts, Sports, Performances and Computer classes. Throughout the year, all the children participate in celebrating various festivals and milestone dates such as Navratri, Diwali, Christmas, India Independence Day and Holi.

GOALS
Give invisible children living in neglected communities a chance to escape the cycles of caste discrimination and poverty.
Improve the quality of the education of children by supplementing the government provided schooling
Provide the children with improved nutrition and living conditions.
