Love, trust and respect are the fundamental values of the education we provide. We foster creativity and common understanding for each other and the environment, we strive for empathy and harmony in all we do and we share the responsibility to care for what we build together: a learning community for children and people of the surrounding villages to create a bright future.
Our declared goal is not only to give each of our children the very best primary school education they can attain, but also to teach them to love each other, respect each other, and help each other wherever they can. We foster our children's creativity and common understanding of each other and of the environment, and we strive for empathy and harmony in all we do - always keeping in mind that through our students we reach the villages' people, and therefore make a change in society.

We do not think our work is done when our children finish 5th standard and leave school. We want to make sure they also obtain a solid higher education to guarantee them a good start in their professional lives.
Therefore we provide financial support to selected children, who could not afford continuing their studies otherwise, as well as counseling and moral support for all our students and their parents. We want to be the source of help and advice for our children until their future is secured and they start working.In order to support the school and provide finance, Aldis Jasper also founded the ‘Verein Arunachala Village School’ a society, in Switzerland, presently headed by Mr.Andreas Frei. This organisation with its many generous Swiss donors, has backed the school, enabling it to flower and grow. Others who have helped this to happen through their financial support, include So Hum Foundation, AHAM, Microsoft India and Philips India, and many more individual donors. This is obviously one way to help us. But there are many more, so here we shall tell you.
