LEAD Stories

A Human without Education is a building without a foundation


Education is very important for every country. Education begins at home and continues throughout our life. Education helps us to lead a good and healthy life. Education helps us to know uses of various types of food and how to consume them. It also educates us about how to protect ourselves from diseases and stay away from bad habits. Education from schools and colleges is important because it helps us how to live in a civilized society and respect one another. It shows us how to obey laws of the society and laws of the land we dwell. It teaches us how to recognize and utilize our skills and use them for a job or business. These skills can be used for betterment of the society, our country and the entire world. In fact, every innovation, invention and discovery made by mankind was due to education. There are still areas in our country where Education is not given importance. The people do not allow the children to go to the schools even when Education is provided for free by the government.

IMG-20180501-WA0005LEADer Ruthwik gathered a team and first spoke to the elders at the slum areas. They spoke of the value of Education and explain their plan educating the children. The people were very supportive and agreed to them. The team gathered at least 50 children and started with their project. They made the whole process interesting by giving out gifts and also playing games. They made sure the children joined schools and attended them too. They started tuitions for the children where they not only taught lessons but also conducted activities such as drawing, singing, dancing etc. the LEADers have seen certain transformations in several children.

Every project that are taken up by LEADers have challenges that they face and the greatest lesson that the LEADers gain is to tackle these challenges. LEADer Ruthwik and his team found it difficult to gather the children at right time as many wouldn’t turn up. The made it fun for the children so that the next time, no one would miss out the tuitions. LEADer Ruthwik is planning to carry out the initiative in other slum areas and target more number of children and make them realize the importance of education.
