The Bhaktivedanta Vaishnavi Gurukula students joined the Sri Krishna Janmashtami celebration in Bhaktivedanta Gurukula and International School in Vrindavan. The girls offered a beautiful dance presentation and a wonderful drama about the story of “Ashishwar Mahadev”. The girls performances amazed the audience and leave them spell-bound.
The Bhaktivedanta Vaishnavi Gurukula of Nandgaon would like to thank Her Grace Yasomati Devi Dasi for donating four sets of kartals and a mrdanga ( a maha from Panchatatva altar in this year kirtanmela in Mayapur).
The 8th and 7th class students of Bhaktivedanta Vaishnavi Gurukula in Nandgaon took their English Grammar and Composition Exam this morning.
Some families in India are so MALE-CENTRIC that they end up with half a dozen girls in the hope of producing at least one male baby; the picture above is a family in Nandgaon who end up with 11 girl child in an attempt to have a boy child. Four of their daughters are attending the Bhaktivedanta Vaishnavi Gurukula free school for the girls in Nandgaon.
Most girls in our school are from underprivileged families who would otherwise not be able to attend school. Many girls that are now in school were used to either beg in the area or were constrained to household activities with no hope of ever getting educated.
Girls are usually seen as burden in the rural areas, with no concept of educating them and are married off early, sometimes even as a child. This puts them in a very dangerous situation where they are forced into adult roles at a very young age.
The Bhaktivedanta Vaishnavi Gurukula is an attempt to educate girls at least up to higher school and give them vocational training. This will enable them to be literate and professionally independent. This school adopts a holistic approach to education, a combination of Indian vedic culture and modern education. The emphasis is to enable a girl child to face the challenges of modern world while rooted in Indian spiritual culture.

YOUTH OF TODAY
We’re the youth of today!
“Make A Change”
I see it on the streets
As we walk right by
What little value
we place on human lives!
But it’s time we get priorities
It’s time to rearrange
Won’t turn my back any longer
It’s time we make a change!
END POVERTY AND HUNGER NOW!
SUPPORT US TO CONTINUE PROVIDING FREE EDUCATION AND NUTRITION TO THE UNDERPRIVILEGED GIRLS OF BRAJ.
