Aarohi Bal Sansar (ABS), began as a primary school in 1994. It is now a middle school catering to to 150+ students from surrounding villages in a 7 km radius. The environment-friendly school buildings, a large playground, a 1:11 teacher-student ratio, a healthy blend of academics and co-curricular activities, creative teaching, and inputs from experts, volunteers combine to make the school a space where children can magically discover and explore their world, learn to appreciate life in all its hues. The school firmly believes that joy and fulfillment in a child's formative years ensures development of a healthy, sensitive and responsible individual.
In keeping with its vision 'Holistic development of personality in a joyful environment', Aarohi Bal Sansar (ABS), has followed a growth trajectory designed to bring meaningful and quality education to children from remote rural villages in and around Satoli.
Taking this a step further, Aarohi initiated the outreach programme in 2016 to support and strengthen the government pre-school/primary education system in remote areas by improving teaching and learning practices. The project aims at promoting holistic learning opportunities for the children in Ramgarh and Okhalkanda block.
The Hari Krishna Trivedi Memorial Fund (HKT) began with a corpus grant for education and health related work to be instituted in the village of Supai and surrounding villages in District Almora was willed to Aarohi by late Mrs Kamla Trivedi, whose husband was a native resident of the village.
Together with the Trivedi family, Aarohi conceived of a programme for providing scholarships, specifically, for young girls; delivering mobile health services and health camps; promoting computer literacy and conducting educational activities with the primary school children in Supai.
