Him Jyoti School is not just a school but a training ground for life. The girls handpicked from disadvantaged families from each District of Uttarakhand, based on a competitive entrance examination are getting an opportunity to learn the foremost values of love, trust and truth. Him Jyoti’s vision is to nurture the learners to be pluralistic, creative, interdependent and capable citizens with a global outlook.
It is pertinent to note that these girls are daughters of a dhobi, an ayah, a tailor, a driver, a farm labourer, a book binder, a rickshaw puller, a school teacher, an office peon and the like. We are confident that they will grow up to make a difference not only in their own lives and the lives of their families and their villages, but will serve the state and the nation in positions of responsibility.
