Jeevan Ashas’s mission is to impact underprivileged children by educating them with sound social and ethical values.
While technological advances are known to throw up all kinds of questions about academic practices and the evolution of the learning environment, the importance of values gets far less attention. This seems strange, given that developing a basic set of values has always been the cornerstone of a students’ education.
“Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.” – CS Lewis.
This project has been successfully implemented in municipal and government aided schools for children in 8th and 9th grade. Some subjects addressed are peer pressure, making right choices, choosing a good role model.
