In our work we strictly follow certain principles:
1. We follow a holistic approach towards life and education paying attention to the different aspects that contribute to a progressive development. For example, we not only provide school books to children, but we also take care that they are capable and in the suitable environment to make an effective use of these books.
2. Our presence in the villages helps towards the growth of local economy. For example, we had to build a compound wall to protect our children from thieves and snakes. Instead of buying readymade cement blocks, we approached four youths from the Agrahara village and educated them in how to make the blocks manually. This provided work to them and to the village women, a future perspective and wings to their creativity. Additionally, we supported the local blacksmith who made the mould, the sand seller, and the granite chip maker by buying these components from them.
3. We are very much concerned about empowering people. Therefore, we try to implement mindsets and structures that allow our people to continue themselves what we have began with them. For example, we are not only giving medical care to people, but we are also teaching and explaining how to prevent a sickness.
4. We are a secular community and we do not follow a particular religion. We have universal prayers for a simple spiritual life, though people who live with us are let to follow their own religion. For example, our children are free to eat vegetarian or non-vegetarian meals.
5. We are very economical in everything. All the same our children are never let to lack anything essential. Since we are responsible not only towards our children, employees and ourselves, but also towards our contributors, we always try to use the financial resources carefully. For example, our old school uniforms are still used as play dresses for our children.
6. We are concerned about natural resources. Therefore we try to reduce waste, to consume as little water and electricity as possible and to teach this behaviour to the people surrounding us. For example, we bring our own bags and boxes if we go for shopping to reduce the use of plastic bags. Or we run our washing machines as often as possible at low temperatures to save electricity. Food is never wasted. We teach our children to put into their plate only what they can eat.
