Intentions of Ganga Valley Educational Trust

Ganga Valley Educational Trust (GVET) was established in 2007 to make quality education accessible to children in one of India’s remotest and most underserved districts, in Uttarakhand.

Here, private schools are far and few and Government schools are not up to the mark.  GVET exists so that every child - irrespective of the social or economic distinction - has access to good education. This is at the core of our efforts.

A journey on the ancient pilgrim route to Gangotri has mesmerized humans for ages. This region is sacred to spiritual seekers and considered the birthplace of Ayurveda. Along the Bhagirathi River, near Uttarkashi, lies Devidhar village. 


Many years ago, the need to provide better education to children here, tugged at the hearts of a few benevolent souls deeply.

I got this great opportunity to teach Science, Online, to students of class 7 and 8 at HBN School. Was glad to see the response and potential questions on the face of the students which required little excitation to be asked.

GVET stands on the cusp between modernization and ingenuousness. If the local population can be convinced that they can lead good, healthy lives with their families and kids in their local communities, it will reduce migration to the plains and bigger cities.

The journey of Happy by Nature School, since its birth in 2009 mirrors that of the nearby Bhagirathi river as it melts away at the glacial source and moves downhill over rocks, steep cliffs, calm valleys and man-made obstacles.
