We Need To Educate Children Not Only For Mind But For Heart & Hands
Bhuvana Santhanam, Director of Outreach, Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Gurukulam Group of Institutions, shares the vision and plans of the organisation for 2023 which is to make the last child educated
Education is a deep and nurturing process in a child’s life. However, that only remains a matter of business for most school owners across the world. On the other hand, Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Gurukulam Group of Institutions is an educational institution that believes to nurture a child’s heart along with his mind and hand.
“We focus on and believe in providing value-based education for the integral and holistic development of a child. At the core of this, we focus on three Hs; Head, Hand and Heart,” says Bhuvana Santhanam, Director Outreach, Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Gurukulam Group of Institutions.
Reaching out to the last kid
Santhanam informs that their pattern of education is infused with love as 75 per cent of their enrolment is from an underprivileged background and that is why most of their campuses are situated in the rural hinterlands of the country.
Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Gurukulam Group of Institutions won two awards under the categories of Innovative school in India and Emerging Higher Education Institution in India.
Santhanam says, “Under the guidance of Satguru Sri Madhusudan Sai, every child is embraced irrespective of his caste, creed, ethnicity and culture.”
According to Santhanam, her institution follows one innovative way to attach students to teachers by keeping them together under the same roof in all their campuses. She mentions the crucial role of her institution in making sure to provide digital education during the pandemic without any resistance.
Santhanam also shares the vision and plans of the organisation for 2023 which is to make the last child educated.
Apart from educating children, Santhanam tells the organisation is also working actively in the nutrition and health vertical.
Santhanam adds that they feed 1.2 million children every morning across 60,000 schools in the country.
Lastly, Santhanam completed the conversation by saying “We live to serve the children”, which is a different yet much-needed motto in our society.
