This is one of the best Non - Profits that is making a real difference. It is a 25 year old organization bring education to very rural remote villages. Over 10 million children are educated in 53,000 villages. A very volunteer driven organization, it provides services to areas where no one goes. My experience with the organization has been spectacular.
My personal experience with Ekal has been nothing short of extreme joy. Nothing embodies the dharmic saying "Vidyadanam Mahaatpunyam" better than their concept of single teacher schools in the remotest parts of Bharat (India). Specifically, their zero overhead handling of any contributions and the extreme commitment of teachers (who are locals in the communities they teach) are the simplest examples of 'education going to the student when the student is unable to reach the education setup'.
