Isha Education was established at Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu as a conglomerate of Isha Vidya, Isha Home School and Isha Insight. Isha Vidya was formed to provide high-quality school education to underprivileged rural children who cannot otherwise access or afford it.
With 9 schools and over 7000 students, the members of Isha Vidya actively support and promote education among female children in the villages as a result of which their schools have seen an increased enrolment of girl children. Isha Home School adopts an unconventional schooling method which strives to provide a nourishing space for learning devoid of pressures. Isha Insight is the brainchild of the Isha Leadership Academy which aims at providing the highest quality of leadership education in India and explores the science of scaling up one's business as well as one's own self.
All these initiatives have contributed to a wide range of social achievements from educated rural population to instilling the youth with leadership skills. These achievements accelerate the founder's vision of enhancing the boundaries of one's perception through education.

The mission of the organisation is to have sustainable holistic development among the underserved.
During 1986-87 the founder of the organization was a student in the Bharathiar University doing studies on Ethnic Tribes and their traditional practices. The needs of the underserved community and desire to support them as a part of the society was his reason for joining the voluntary sector.
Mr. A. S. Sankaranayaranan, Director of NMCT, formerly a Professor at an Ayurvedic college, met tribal people during his research in the forest area. He found that the Tribes were selling their lands for meager amounts and so he decided to dissuade them by making them economically viable. NMCT also felt the necessity for empowering women and run programmes on childcare, health and hygiene for the needy.
