Intel voulnteers created our organic farm about a year ago. Now, dig anywhere in our Organic Farm, you will find earth worms – a sign of healthy soil, produces safe food – thanks to Bhavani and her team. Any one visiting our school would remember the taste of our simple food  and would remember the smiling faces of Sarada and Amaravathi. Goshala is always a good place to contemplate – our happy cows and several babies saved from going to butchers. Vermicompost, the three ducks, Fish, Bees, attention seeking Bhajji – our baby monkey, Meenakshi -our parrot, mighty Diya & Rudra have made the place very special. Thanks to you – Patrons, Friends of Brahmi, Volunteers, Parents- you have transformed  the little school Anjana has become the most Vibrant place on this planet!!  Children and Teachers & Staff love being here.
