Lokniketan Trust provides free or minimal cost education and living environment for a few thousand needy and poor children at a number of centres in Gujarat, India since 1961. A moral living environment is nurtured for students from very young age through their college education.
Lokniketan has students from kindergarten up through various colleges which offer acredited Bachelor Degrees in Rural Sciences and Education as well as Master Degrees in Social Works. Most of the children here study at nominal token expense or free.
Before 46 years, in June 1961, with a missionary zeal and enthusiasm, with ardent devotion and dedication the institution was started with 18 students, today it has bloomed with 28 institutions with 3600 flowering faces. They are molded with the spirit of non-violence and non-coercive practices, aspiring to contribute the humanity through sincerity, honesty, humility and fearlessness.
