Badi Asha in Hindi means “Big Hope”. The school provides free education, for around 140 children from kindergarten to grade-6, from the ages of 4 to 16 years old, who reside in the impoverished Aurangabad district of Varanasi.
In addition to a child-focused and creativity centred education and a safe environment for learning and play,
we provide our students with uniforms, school supplies, as well as 2 healthy organic meals and healthcare free of cost for the children and their families.
Further, we provide assistance with secondary school tuition for our alumni.

We give great importance to the pedagogy aspect, in fact we design and implement regular training sessions for our teachers and our approach is based on non-traditional methods of education and pedagogy, inspired by the philosophies of Montessori, Steiner, and Krishnamurti. Besides the regular curriculum, we focus on art, music, drama and gardening which we use also in a therapeuthical way for students with special needs. For our students and community memebers we offer computer training as well.
