Fees and Funding

Welcome aboard the Swadhaa Family!

Fees

We believe that the most important investment in a child’s education is the teacher and consequently the most crucial ‘infrastructure’ of the school. For a teacher to be able to be completely present and fully spend herself in the classroom with a lightness of spirit he needs to be free of the pressures of livelihood. The school believes in paying its most valuable assets a comfortable salary and therefore the fee is not a compromised figure.

However, we would not like to limit admission to children from families who are comfortable with the fees alone. This kind of education is of deep importance to us as sensitive educators and we see in it a larger possibility of enriching students across the economic spectrum. Therefore, for somebody who deeply appreciates this approach, the fees must not be a hindrance. We encourage such parents to approach us and we will mutually discuss the possibility of a way forward with Swadhaa.

As a corollary, those who find the school inexpensive and strongly believe in its vision must consider contributing over and above the basic fee structure as it would go a long way in supporting this honest endeavor of meaningful learning for the whole community. The additional income will also help us embrace families valuing this kind of learning environment; for whom the school would otherwise not be a potential option.

Funding

The work towards creating a progressive, holistic learning space generates a sublime impact in the measure in which it is pure but does not produce marketable goods generating income. A school like us has to rely on the support of well-wishers to raise funds for infrastructure and facilities.Apart from contributions from families with children at Swadhaa we need the support of those of you who share our vision.

It is our hope that Swadhaa will be a top philanthropic priority for your family. Donations could be in the form of “time” or “money”. Only you can decide how much you wish to commit, but no matter what the amount or time, we need and appreciate every gift.

Time

If you are someone with a passion for education of children and redefining the conventions of teaching and learning and if you have a talent/skill that you wish to share with children, we are sure you can create the time and at Swadhaa, we value that time as a precious contribution towards the expansion of our learning environment.

You need to be driven to share your passion by reaching out to a child’s heart and inspire love in the child for the process of learning. You will find an atmosphere open to learning and growing and in the process enjoying and celebrating with all the efforts gravitating towards the commitment of making learning a joyful journey for the learner and the facilitator.

If you wish to commit yourself as a learner-teacher working full time with the children in the spirit of the underlying educational philosophy of the school, you may connect with us.

Monetary Contributions

The school is registered as a non-profit charitable trust and is seeking tax-exempt status for donations. All involved in the learning community can take that extra step of raising funds by contacting friends and well-wishers who wish to make a difference by contributing to the blossoming of a school with its honest intent of creating an uncompromising learning space.

If someone, as an independent entity, feels moved to support our vision of education, we request you to get in touch with us.
