To facilitate students and encourage them in pursuing education after primary level.


The Schedule Tribe population cannot afford to spend on their children’s education due to their weak economic condition. Instead of sending them to schools, they compel their children to start working in their traditional occupation or any other job for monetarily support to the family. Thus, government launched a scheme to give 100% grant to NGOs for starting residential schools, known as Ashramshalas, for standards 1-7, 8-10 and 11-12. These schools provide education, boarding and lodging to tribal students and are fully funded by the state government, though they are run by NGOs.
