It is located in a 60-acre campus, which houses a variety of development activities for villagers, students, youth and volunteers from abroad.

Its educational mission is to promote the progress of society through the total development of individuals. Following its motto of “Community-centric education in an education-centric community,” Mitraniketan has grown and evolved over the years to develop new ways to meet the needs of its students and community.
