Started in 1966, Ramakrishna Mission Aalo is serving the Arunachali tribal in the fields of education, healthcare and livelihood. The centre’s major activities include a non-residential English medium CBSE school (KG to XII Std.) for about 1400 boys and girls; a Hostel for about 250 tribal boys from KG to VIII Std; 13 non-formal schools for about 750 students from I to IV Std. in remote areas; a charitable hospital with mobile medical unit serving more than 15,000 patients annually; and health awareness programmes covering about 45,000 people annually.
Despite inclement weather for about eight months, poor road connectivity, difficulty in getting daily provisions, and in hiring trained teachers even at a high salary and with collecting bare minimum fees from the students and meagre, irregular grants from the State/Central governments, the Mission is flourishing as a centre of academic excellence in this remote part of our country.
Regular fire, winter and distress reliefs are carried out throughout the year in the interior parts of Arunachal by distributing utensils, books, stationery, food grains, blankets, readymade garments to poor and needy. Around 7000 poor and needy persons are served annually under this programme.
Poultry, Fishery, Agriculture and Bakery units are run for providing nutrition to children. Carpentry, Printing Press and Tailoring units for giving in-house Service to the inmates.
