As Ananda Nagar is located in one of the most impoverished and downtrodden districts of India, most students drop out of high school due to economic hardship and the literacy rate is extremely low. Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar (also known as Shrii Shrii Anandamurti) had the vision to elevate the educational status and improve the standard of living through a comprehensive system of education.
Since the 1960’s the Anandanagar project has provided primary schools and high schools were started for the local people and these continue to provide quality education to this day. There are also several children’s homes and medical initiatives such as a hospital and an acupuncture clinic which provide free medical support to the local residents. There is a College, a Computer Literacy Centre, and a Music College.
Today Anandanagar has 34 primary schools with about 2000 students. The high school serves 800 students and the junior high school is attended by 400 students. The college presently serves 700 students, and hostels for all ages of children provide accommodations for 500.
