Value based education is needed to empower citizens to become agents of change for better world societies. Value education is not simply the heart of education but also the education of heart as it inculcates sense of cooperation and fellow feeling among people. Value based education is the real need of the day to produce good upright human beings, who can inspire others to tread on the divine path and serve mankind selflessly. Values based education is the best way to enable society to move forward and bring about sustainable development in the world. Through such education, country will be able to harness the energyof the youth and persuade them to work for the betterment of the world now in turmoil. With increasing social evils like alcoholism, female-foeticide, drug abuse etc. the need of the houris to have a Drug free society and all mankind should be educated for a better living. For the same purpose Kalgidhar Trust is working in the direction of bringing back India’s glory by arresting drug abuse and female-foeticide. The Kalgidhar trust is working on the Sri Guru Nanak DevJi’s principles who reportedly said in 1499 that “it is a woman who keeps the race going” and that we should not “consider woman cursed and condemned, when from woman are born leaders and rulers.
The Kalgidhar Trust, Baru Sahib is an internationally acclaimed not for profit organization that works in the direction of providing Value-based Education in rural North India. Today, it runs a chain of 129 CBSE Eng Med Schools across 33 districts of five North Indian states, thereby benefitting around 60,000 rural students. It has become a trend-setter in bring a paradigm shift to addressing the cancerous drug-addiction issue through Value-based Education.
It is high time that the community understands the need to invest in ‘shrines of Education’ and social Development rather than just creating more and more religious shrines.
