Inspired by the famous exhortation of Sw. Vivekananda – “They alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive” , a value based initiative by the name ‘Vivekdeep’ is launched for under privileged children in Dwarka, New Delhi. The experiment started in April 2014 with 25 slum children. Parents of these children build our society as masons, gardeners, vegetable vendors and house maids.
Real education is the need of hour. Education should be such that it will clear the ‘Conscience ( Vivek)’ of the learner and act as a ‘light(deep)’. With this light of conscience, the child will then easily distinguish between right and wrong, true and false and never falter in the walk of life.
Hence ‘Vivekdeep’ was lighted.
The program is so designed that the learner becomes Spiritually awakened, Mentally agile and Physically strong.
Every day the class starts with meditation and recitation from scriptures. Then classes are held on Mathematics, General Science, Social Science and Spoken English. Knowledge delivery is done in such a way that there is at least one moral take away irrespective of the subject taught.
At the end of the class, students are given milk and fruit. Regular medical check-up is also done for the students. In this short span, it has shown remarkable impact and people from various walks of life are eager to join this unique movement.
