NachiketaTapovan, a spiritually oriented, non-profit making organisation was formed in January 1999 to spread the moral and spiritual values. Tapovan aims at achieving this by translating its ideals into practical activities for the elevation of humanity irrespective of caste, creed, community, gender, or religion looking upon people as the absolute manifestation of the Divine.
The journey so far
In 2001, Smt. Vasundhara, along with some like-minded women, brought together some local children of under-privileged backgrounds, with the intention of providing basic literacy. They started under a Neem tree, counseling families on the need to educate their wards. Their intention was to encourage children to go to school. By 2003, the numbers swelled and they all shifted into an empty plot owned by Vasu Amma – as she came to be called,which she later donated for the cause. Construction started for the school building in 2004. By 2005, the structure was ready and classes commenced with about 100 students. Many volunteers and patrons were attracted to the project and formed a strong support system.
Today, the premises is bustling with students, faculty, volunteers and visitors. Along with the generous volunteers who have pitched in as a great teaching faculty, the school now recruits qualified, full-time teachers.
The first few batches appeared privately for tenth standard examinations. Most of the students who successfully did so with our guidance and financial assistance are nearing the completion of their graduation courses. NVM is now recognized by the State Secondary Certificate (S.S.C.) Board and the first tenth standard S.S.C. batch came out with flying colours in 2018. We support and guide all deserving students past their 10th standard, providing financial help and counseling to move into junior colleges and then on to graduation.
In 2011, we opened a branch in Kodgal village, Jadcherla, Mahabubnagar district. Step by step, the campus was expanded and the staff trained by our patrons—as of 2018, our Jadcherla branch has 200 students and Hyderabad branch has 270 students. We are making every effort to prepare our senior students to appear for tenth standard and aim higher.
We owe our growth and progress to our philanthropic partners and volunteers.
