"Ekal plays a significant role in my life.
I don’t think I could have done anything
more important than this in my life."
"Whenever I attend a marriage or a social gathering,
I make it a point to have dinner with prospective donors.
This habit gives me a chance to get one more donor or supporter for Ekal."
"Our forest- dwellers deserve special respect from us
as they supported lord Ram against Ravana. Today,
we are paying back to these communities through
Ekal for helping the deity in his time of need."
"In addition to providing basic education,
Ekal schools are also giving children
cultural and ethical education it is wholesome education."
"My biggest satisfaction is that I am part of a unique movement like Ekal.
I am thrilled to discover that the inmates of Ekal, Villages due to
Ekal villages due to Ekal’s curriculum are also turning health conscious
and quitting bad habits like alcoholism. Clearly, they are working more
actively towards improving their financial status as well."
Dr. Mawandia’s compassionate nature reflects in his passion for EKAL.
He started as a donor but his dedication towards the organization soon
earned him the position of a Trustee.
"Normally, it is believed that each human being
must pay back one’s debt to mother-father,
teacher, and God. But I think there is one more debt,
that of the society which we must payback."
"I feel proud to be a member of the Ekal Movement
which is focused on bringing new hope in the life
of the communities who were otherwise left out in
the dark due to so many reasons in the past."
"I find a great parallel between the Ekal Vidyalaya children and paddy saplings.
Each sapling acquires its basic strength by staying together.
EKAL schools are like a nursery where the children acquire the art
of learning and imbibe the strength of their culture."
"our village’s people are always keen to learn and find a solution to their problems.
All they need is a genuine friend and Ekal has filled that gap for the villagers.
Other organizations seek help from the government, but Ekal is capable
of helping the local government by providing aid in the remote areas."
