Omkarananda Shiksha Samiti, Khadi, was formed in the year 2000. It is situated on a small hill, five minutes walk from the main road. The classrooms and courtyard have a spectacular view of the Henval River and the Khadi Village. Even the charming little Shiva Mandir in the village is visible from here.

The School runs Nursery Classes to Classes V. The children come from as far as
4 km away (1.5 hours walk one way). Beside the core curriculum, the students learn Garhwali and Hindi songs and play Volleyball, Kabaddi and Hockey as sports.

The students here look happy and spontaneous. Perhaps they are grateful for the privilege of having a wonderful learning environment, one, that is a rarity in this remote hill region.
