Hope and Help International is partnering with Veda School of Learning in Andhra Pradesh, India to provide education, physical care and spiritual training to the children of rural uneducated parents. While many organizations provide child care, Hope and Help is committed to a holistic approach to child development.
The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. We believe that the spiritual aspect should be at the forefront of any child’s development. It was the spiritual impact that such a school can have that led director, Surala Persie Swarupa (Dolly), to begin Veda. She realized that children can be the key to reaching South Asia with the Gospel. As the children learn the Bible at school, they are able to share it when they go back home. Parents know that their children are getting the best education possible, and that this education will stop the cycle of poverty. They are thankful for this and are open to the message that Veda proclaims.
At Veda, the curriculum follows the highest academic standards. Veda is a school for more than 1,200 students, about 120 of whom are residential students sponsored by HHI. While there, the children are given a top-quality education. The government of India requires that all 7th and 10th grade students take government exams. Veda’s 7th and 10th graders consistently have a near 100% passing rate on these tests.
