Gramya, in Naugarh (Uttar Pradesh, India), consists of 8 schools in remote rural villages and provides education to the tribal children who are deprived of education. It promotes awareness about importance of education and overall development. Gramya makes villagers and students aware about social issues like women’s violence and caste by organizing puppet shows, bal mela (Children’s Fair), mahila diwas (Women’s Day) and health workshops with special emphasis on female personal hygiene and family planning. Gramya runs 5 libraries from where students can borrow fiction and non-fiction books.
