Ekal’s mission is the holistic development of villages through basic education, digital literacy, skill development, health awareness, modern sustainable agricultural practices, and rural entrepreneurship. The vision of Ekal Vidyalaya (single-teacher schools) is to facilitate the process of empowering communities based on the concept of social, economic, and gender equality.
