  Summary

 

Vigyan Ashram was founded in 1983 by Dr. Kalbag with a vision to empower the rural youth through activity based learning. The ashram carries out variety of activities in education, rural technology and innovation, media creation and Information Technology. The main activity is a diploma course in basic rural technology. This course integrates classical education with hands-on learning programs to impart knowledge that is closer to real life. The learning and innovation is done at very low-cost so that it becomes viable in the rural parts of India. Vigyan Ashram has also developed several technologies using the research and development work done through its education system.
