22nd Annual Program of Ramakrishna Mission Education Fund

               22nd Annual Program of Ramakrishna Mission Education Fund 

Dear Friend,


More than a hundred years back, the great Swami Vivekananda proclaimed, “Education is the first priority’. Ever since then, the Ramakrishna Mission set out on an epoch-making journey to realize Swamiji’s vision. Educational initiatives in Rural & Tribal areas of India have been an integral part of Ramakrishna Mission’s education policy. 


In the late nineties, a group of admirers of Swami Vivekananda decided to form an organization called Ramakrishna Mission Education Fund (RKMEF). Interested donors send education-related contributions to Ramakrishna Mission, through this Education Fund. 

RKMEF organizes an Annual Program that includes talks by several Swamis, devotional songs, plays highlighting the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna, Maa Sarada & Swami Vivekananda. Please find below a trailer of this year’s Annual Program. The introduction video below highlights the Fund’s objectives & Activities.


This year, the annual program will be held on-line on 26th September, 3:00-5:30 PM PST / 6:00-8:30 PM EST.
