Founded by the Chinmaya Mission of Trinidad and Tobago, CHINMAYA VIDYALAYA (CV) is committed to providing students with a purposeful, transformative and rich educational learning experience through its broad network of early childhood, primary and secondary schools. Established in 2003 with a signature campus in Couva, today, seven campuses are serving students’ educational needs in communities in Trinidad.

In less than sixteen years, Chinmaya Vidyalaya (CV) has established a track record in academic excellence. Firmly rooted in a value-based education system and integrating elements of the mainstream curriculum, blended with ancient spirituality, culture and leadership modules, Chinmaya Vidyalaya is advancing high academic achievement and fostering diverse learning opportunities. Chinmaya Vidyalaya has successfully grown and scaled its model of education and presently impacts a total of 780 early childhood, primary and secondary students and their families in Trinidad and Tobago.

Chinmaya Vidyalaya is launching one of its biggest educational milestones
– the construction of a state-of-the-art 12-acre, 30,000 square-foot school campus in Trinidad – ‘The Chinmaya Vidyalaya Sant Tulsidas Campus’.

Construction has begun and will be completed over two phases. Phase 1 will have the capacity to accommodate 800 full-time secondary school students. Powered by a state-of-the-art modern campus, students will have access to grow and learn academically
in innovative spaces equipped with smart technology while enhancing their cultural development, spiritual well-being, real-world experience and leadership capabilities with integrated cultural programming and industry-led training.

The Chinmaya Vidyalaya Sant Tulsidas Campus is poised to not only be green but to also serve as an environmental sustainability model in the use of green technologies and as a learning module for the broader community.

Greening Initiatives: CV’s curriculum is being modified to integrate and reflect greening initiatives with a goal of developing student-led green projects and environmental awareness around preservation, and other climate action and sustainability initiatives.

Harvesting Rainwater: With the proposed implementation of a catchment pond and a planned rainwater harvesting system at the new CV Sant Tulsidas Campus, students will participate in demonstration projects on water treatment, irrigation projects and ‘water reuses’ for a healthy planet.

Powered by over 30,000 square feet of multi-level learning spaces, the new Couva campus will be equipped with a wide range of facilities, smart technology and resources dedicated to the effective dissemination of a blended academic and spiritual curriculum.

Phase I of this state-of-the-art campus is scheduled to open in September 2020. The facilities on this expanded campus are designed to accommodate 800 students from Grade 6 – 12. This doubles the capacity of our current infrastructure and will accommodate the current waiting list of 100+ students. The Campus will showcase several distinguishing features aligned with advancing education into the 21st century. The classroom will be equipped with smart technology, audiovisual spaces, an ICT hub, Library, Science labs, Music and Arts spaces, as well as physical and mental well-being spaces to grow – gymnasium and yoga/meditation rooms.

Phase II of the project will integrate a range of additional innovative spaces, tools, and equipment designed to facilitate industry-led vocational skill-building in entrepreneurship, digital literacy, welding, woodworking, carpentry, as well as skill-building initiatives on environmental and climate action to create greater awareness amongst youth on preserving the environment.

With a total projected cost of USD $5.3 million (construction, furnishings, technology and equipment), we are seeking dedicated sponsors and lifelong supporters such as yourself, to help shape and transform the educational playing field to better educate and nurture today’s youth to effectively take on tomorrow’s leadership roles as your employees, your caregivers, your political and health care leaders. Given the recurring failure of the public education system in Trinidad and Tobago, we are now at a critical juncture where we must prioritize and support alternative solutions that are effectively leading and transforming the educational development of our promising future leaders. Chinmaya Vidyalaya has
been at the forefront in re-imagining, transforming, and trailblazing a legacy of educational successes. It is, therefore, our collective social responsibility in the private and civic sector to actively throw our full support behind a proven and tested model in innovative education that is guaranteeing effective outcomes for the future prosperity of our society.

To achieve this goal of preparing more young leaders, we are faced with the challenge of raising the required funds for both construction and furnishings. To date, a group of sponsors (donors) has committed to an early round of USD $1million toward the start of the construction of the building foundation. Now we are seeking your sponsorship to take the project to the next phase of construction. To complete the construction phase we require USD $3 million and an additional USD $1.3 million for furnishings, equipment, technology for classrooms, donor wall and the scholarship fund.
