It was created to solve a core challenge, that is, modern education does not cater for teaching children the human values, therefore lordsai.com has taken the initiative to integrate a value based model to teach kindness in action.
In relation to the villagers:
A) Financially instable - no regular income
B) They are labourers who earn far less than a $1.00 a day to support the whole family!
C) Type of work ranges from working in the fields as cultivators, farming or as a labourer in a quarry.
D) Too old to work or suffering from ill health.
E) There is no electricity, no running water, no sanitation, no government schools, no medical faculties etc

What will happen immediately?
The senior students will:
a) Learn the theory and framework of Grama Seva, and its importance,
b) Engage in packing the food and blankets to cater for 100 or more houses,
c) Load the truck with all these packages and set off to village to render service to humanity,
d) Visit door to door where possible in Garbhanga village or gather villagers in one place (due to dense forest) -
to serve the packages and to experience the love and gratitude expressed by the villagers and also to secure their blessings.
e) Be inspired to serve their people in the future.
f) Experience that Education + Kindness = Progress and Prosperity
g) Experience that this service opens the human dimension in man which dissolves tribal, cultural, and
h) Return back to school to discuss their experience.
The Villagers will experience:
a) That there is someone who cares for them! It will empower them and give them hope for a better future.
b) The goodness that the school provides and it will encourage them to send their children for an
education rather than keeping them into child labour for farming, tea plantation etc.
