Vidyalaya Vikasana Samithi
It was the long-cherished dream of Late Shri Kuttamath Sreedharan Master, Late Shri K T Kunhi Raman,Cheemeni, Shri K Hariharan Podavoor and Shri K Raghavan, Podavoor to start an educational institution, truly in tune with the ideals of our ancient 'Rishis'. Their Insatiable thirst for preserving Indian Culture through an educational institution gave birth to Vivekananda Vidya Mandiram Cheemeni in the year 1993. It had a humble beginning with thirteen kids and a single teacher. Bharatheeya Vidyanikethan readily recognised the school and in the same year and made it, its sub-centre and since then it has been guided and governed by BVN.
Later on, the samithi was enlarged with the addition of a few philanthropists and the joined efforts of the members made great strides. The iron-will and determination of this 'Samithi' members worked wonders in a short period of time. They accumulated their hard earned money and bought ten cents of land and built a school-building there, and shifted the classes to the new building and thereupon this 'Sisvatika' was upgraded to an L.P School, with classes upto V in the year 1998. Bharatheeya Vidyanikethan approved it to be an Upper Primary School in 2003 and since then it has been developing by leaps and bounds.
Later on five more cents of land was bought and added to the school campus making the total extent of the land as 15 cents. The 'Samithi' is planning to start VIII std in the academic year 2017-18 and all arrangements are being made for the same. In the meantime, the school was accredited as an independent agency with all the rights and privileges by 'NIOS' on 18.11.2013 with Accreditation Number O.B0918216.
The Samithi aspires to make the institution a Higher Secondary School. But it lacks sufficient extent of land. The accomodation even at present is insufficient. It fails to give admission to all the needy. Every year a few applications for admission are turned down. So, anticipating financial assistance from the generous and like-minded people, the samithi has decided to buy 3 acres of land near the school worth Rs One Crore and build a spacious building thereafter. The Samithi is badly in need of huge sum of money to possess the said land. We appeal to all generous and like-minded people to extend their helping hand and make this Endeavour a grand success.
