Enjoy Reading? Read the book, "Work High, Sleep Low", and learn the story behind the Making of our SVV School in India.
Vinay Singh is our Founder's husband, and he has built the Shiksha Vikas Vidyalaya school in his ancestral village of Chanchli, India. The goal of the school is to impart free education to primary school children, in the form of an after-school program. All proceeds from the sale of the book directly funds the school. Capt. M.S. Kohli, the leader of the first successful Indian expedition to Everest, has written the forward. If you're wondering about the title of the book - it refers to a pattern of training used in mountaineering.
The book is available on Amazon.com:
All proceeds from the sale of the book go to support the SVV School.
