About Gurukul Kalpataru

Gurukul Kalpataru is a learning and development center promoting creative thinking through fun development activities after school hours. Gurukul creates space for self-expression to develop kids’ confidence and abilities.

It is a non-profit social venture of Aravindam Foundation started in April 2012 to provide children with a variety of educational activities that add value to their creative and versatile development.

Who is it for?

The children, youth and adults (6 years and above) are from our neighborhood in villages Carterpuri and Pachgaon. They are mostly from migrant families from eastern states that arrive for job opportunities in Gurgaon. Living in poor conditions and deprived of opportunities, they have one great escape – The Gurukul Kalpataru:)

Around 500 kids, youth and women attend the two Gurukul Kalpataru centers everyday.


Youth and adults receive certified IT trainings and other vocational and job specific trainings.

Kids and youth participate in diverse extracurricular creative learning programs provided by their teachers and volunteers.


By creating an environment in which children get engaged, participate, experiment, and express freely. Children are exposed to team work, problem solving, exchange of ideas, culture and environment awareness, decision making and much more.

The non-formal education impacts children and their families in various ways:

  • Discovering new talents and passion for learning
  • Better school grades and behavior changes
  • Increased parental awareness and support
  • Higher aspirations and goals

Why help?

We believe in education that facilitates self expression, experimentation and innovation. What if there were no grades, targets and competition? Kids would excel beyond expectation when there are no boundaries or limits.

The challenges in marginalized societies are

  • Financial constraints and social issues (illiteracy of the parents and lack of support)
  • Poor school education environment
  • Shortage of well qualified teachers and facilitatore
  • Lack of opportunity to go to school
