Who Are We?

We are a mindful community nestled in the Indian Himalayas, in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand. We live, meditate, farm, trek, make music and run a school together.
APV School is a model school and teacher training center dedicated to providing a holistic, mindful and inclusive educational experience to the children of Uttarakhand.

Watch “Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktaye” documentary by Chad Roberson, about APV

"Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktaye" winds us through a day in the life of the school; through the lush valleys and splendid mountain peaks of the Himalayas, through the tranquil villages and fertile fields. We will peer into classrooms and singing assemblies; we will sit in on peaceful meditation gatherings and see boisterous children at play. We will follow the children to their villages to see the rigors of mountain life and visit the ashram to learn more about community living. Through candid interviews with headmaster Anand Dwivedi, APV teachers, and students, we will come to see a more enlightened form of education and way of life.

Your SUPPORT IS NEEDED! Each monsoon we suffer tremendously. This past season was one of the worst in history, and as such our school and residential buildings were damaged once again. Your tax deductible donation via the Himalayan Progressive Education Fund, will enable us to facilitate reconstructing portions of our buildings as well as replace damaged education materials. - With great Appreciation, the APV Community
