The Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation (literally Foundation of Solo Schools) is a non-profit organization involved in education and village development in rural areas and tribal villages of India. It is the largest grassroots, non-government education initiative in India with presence in more than 50,000 villages providing free education to more than one million children. The foundation’s model of operation is single-teacher schools, with the premise of “Ek Shikshak, Ek Vidyalaya” meaning “one teacher for every school.” The individual schools, known as Ekal Vidyalayas, have local teachers who teach in the regional language using various modes like story-telling, folk dramas, and folk songs. The schools also impart moral education, health care education and organic farming techniques.
