58689Re: theos-talk Olcott Memorial School
- Jan 7, 2013Let me add. Now they are expanding the curriculum to provide vocational
education in such trades as electrician, auto mechanic etc.
At the time when Olcott opened the school it was called Panchama School.
Panchamas are the lowest class considered 'untouchable'. The school is
providing basic education to the poorest segment of the society in the true
spirit of Brotherhood.
