Good Bye Celebration of the 7th class in April 2015 with teachers and employees (second row f. l. t. r.: Riyaz, Babu, Ramesh, Narigappa, Giribabu, Kumar, Chandra Mohan, Klaus (Prema), Raja Sekhar, Prabhavathi, Ramadevi, Munemma, A. Saraswathi, M. Saraswathi, Zahrunnisha, Vijayalakshmi, Anasuya, Uttamma)


We are practising a holistic pedagogy for head, heart and hands – very different to the wide spread so called education consisting only of the normal syllabus (language, science, social science, general knowledge and mathematics). The feedback of 7th class students and teachers is published on our website as well ( The statements have been edited and shortened to avoid unnecessary repetitions.


Students’ Feedback

Raju has been very sick in 2013 needing blood transfusions desperately. His parents could not arrange this – they have no health insurance… Students and teachers did everything they could to help him; Prabhavathi teacher donated blood ( Now Raju is a strong young man capable to lift 50 kg rice – he won as well several gold medals at Karate competitions.

Sarya wants to become Karate master – understandable as she won gold medals twice in Karate competitions!

The echo was very good. A 9th class student of a school in Mudigubba said that he was very thankful for this opportunity as up to now he had not been able to draw one line by hand only. A female student of the 8th class in the Sai School in Mudigubba said that she has to pay thousands of Rupees for their Private School, but nevertheless ever had such a chance… She asked for more workshops like this.


With very cordial greetings,

Yours, Helga Shanti Fründt
