Malenadu Education and Rural Development Society (MEARDS) was established in 1998 to promote over-all development of children in a child-centric ambience. Their activities mainly take place in North Kannada district of Karnataka.

Some of their activities are as follows:

  • Chandana School for Children: The NGO's aim is to impart entrepreneurial, vocational, and activity-based education to students from early childhood to matriculation. The trustees believe that education should be interesting, meaningful and that financial constraints should not be a hurdle for getting proper education.  The organisation also runs a pre-primary school under the same name. Besides academics, they also conduct outdoor sports and games, have an interactive science centre and audio-visual methods to encourage different ways of learning. The children are also encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities such as dancing and speech competitions. MEARDS also has a Science Centre with the financial support of Deshpande Foundation in Hubli to provide science training to the teachers and students, especially from government schools.
  • Eklavya Computer Centre: The centre provides soft and technical skills training especially in leadership, communication and computer knowledge in order to enable the underprivileged in the area. They have 4 centres currently with around 250 students. The centre also conducts functional English workshops, a mobile library to facilitate better communication skills, and personality development.
