Vanayatra: Visiting tribal schools in Rajasthan

Vanayatra is an integrated and essential part of FTS activities. Local bodies organize a trip to some "Ekal Vidyalaya" near to the place.

These trips are organized to have a first hand experience of activities en site. These vanayatras encourage and motivate FTS members and people at large to serve the tribal society.

Normally these are one day or even half day tours. These are like excursions we enjoyed in our student life. FTS do not expend for these trips. Instead these are contributory.

Please inform us if you would like to join the trip.
