AMHS has a unique pedagogy. It’s a school for the children run by the children. The SRCs make education contextual, accessible and joyful


We reach 2000 households in 30 villages. The majority in these villages are Sahariyas, one of India’s most vulnerable tribal groups


Our students have found jobs in the health, education and postal departments as well as the state police and armed forces

What do we do?

Adharshila provides quality education to a thousand children that are first generation school goers. It works through a recognised Higher Secondary School to provide education to the tribal children of a ‘poverty enclave’ created by the displacement from the Kuno Wildlife Sanctuary in the last couple of years of the previous century.

Adharshila Higher Secondary School (AHSS) is a well equipped campus with a computer lab and sports and kitchen facilities. Our staff is entirely local, half of them are alumni of AHSS.

All students are provided free of cost books & notebooks, school dress, sports dress and Mid-Day Meal (MDM). The pedagogy of Adharshila is based on the local context with a global outlook. Sports is also one of our priorities and the campus has a small indoor sports auditorium as well as facilities for outdoor sports like cricket, football, basketball etc.
