Ramakrishna Mission Students Home consists of three fully free educational institutions: a Residential High School,
a Residential Polytechnic College and a Primary Day School. This residential Students Home is serving poor orphan and destitute boys selected
from various places, mostly rural areas, to study in Residential High School and Residential Polytechnic College. Primary Day School does not have
hostel and boys and girls from the local community are admitted as day scholars.
Since it is meant only for the poor who cannot afford education, it provides free education, food and accommodation and other
personal expenses to the inmates. It combines the ancient Gurukula system with modern technology under the care of monks of the Ramakrishna Order.
It was started in 1905 by Swami Ramakrishnananda, a direct disciple of Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishna. Currently there are about 670 students in residence.
The Home runs on the generous donations contributed by philanthropic public and institutions.
