The Kailadevi Senior Secondary School provides high quality education at par with cities, and excellent infrastructure to children from remote villages around Karauli and Kailadevi town.

Kailadevi Sanskrit Academy
This is recent undertaking established to provide rigorous training in Sanskrit and Vedic praxis to children in the area and to preserve these ancient arts. The school is mostly residential,
Ekat Bodh Gram
We also support a school for children with hearing and speech disabilities which is now considered the best in Rajasthan
EKAT Bodh Gram is one of only three schools in the state of Rajasthan with specialized facilities for the education and care of children with hearing and speech impairments and the only one within a radius of 200 km. Despite its rural location, the school receives students from neighbouring cities such as Bharatpur, Alwar, as it is the only school in the state which provides education up to the 12th grade. Currently, the school has 150 students, all of whom reside within the premises.Maharaja Krishna Chandra Pal developed much of the infrastructure of the school starting with equipment to test hearing, state-of the art hearing aids, and going on to a girl’s hostel and classroom complex which has allowed the school to become completely residential and exponentially increased the number of students from 70 to 240 children as of now.
It is now the only such school in Rajasthan which provides education up to the 12th standard and has students from every corner of Rajasthan. The Maharaja also built an activity and carpentry workshop which allows students to enjoy extra-curricular activities, as well as receive vocational training. The students now make their own furniture and uniforms.
The students are all from extremely economically underprivileged families, and the government funding per child covers only uniforms and a portion of the food costs so the school takes complete responsibility for remaining expenses including the remainder of the meal costs, administrative salaries, infrastructural maintenance, textbooks, tuition fees and special equipment.
In 2018, students from Rutgers University installed a solar suitcase (portable solar panel) to provide electrical back-up to the residential facilities and to the machines in the speech therapy room.
