The Prime Minister said that his government is caring for even small things in these schools, which are meant for tribal students.

Ekal Vidyalaya is a movement involved in the integrated and holistic development of rural & tribal India and Nepal. As the name ‘Ekal Vidyalaya’ suggests, the organisation runs one-teacher schools in the remotest rural and tribal villages to take the education to every child.

The Prime Minister also noted that the Union Government is also working enthusiastically for better education and skill development in India. The Prime Minister remarked that as India completes 75 years of Independence, the success of Ekal Sangathan will help in realising Mahatma Gandhiji’s ideals of Gram Swaraj, social justice of Dr BR Ambedkar, ‘Antyodaya’ of Deen Dayal Upadhyay and Swami Vivekananda’s dream of a glorious India.
