We believe in providing educational opportunities that open minds, stimulate holistic perspectives and inspire transformation. Seated on 27-acres of sustainable land, our school provides FREE private grade education to underserved children grades K-12.

Twice a year high school students, college students, teachers, and professors as well as yoga and mindfulness practitioners from around the world apply to visit the school and participate in one of 3 Global Service Leadership Programs coordinated by the Foundation: Impact India, Bridge India and or Insight India.

“When I picked my daughter up from the airport she shared that she was not ready to come. She was already making plans to go back to Vision International School and stay for 6 weeks for the Bridge India program”. Cammie shared that the most painful part of her trip was leaving the children behind. My daughter is a better human being because of her time at Impact India. We thank the Puranik Foundation. My family is extremely grateful.”
