“You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.” ― Brigham Young
JRE understands the power of education and is making a great effort to share the right to a good education for all beyond the walls of the institution. On 25th January, 2014 volunteers from Samanvaya-JRE Group of Institutions and the Educomp Foundation team visited the nearby village Jaitpur to share the importance of learning and knowledge among the all residents including children, focusing especially on girls on this occasion. A street play was conducted to increase awareness of the importance of education for girls, and to encourage increased efforts in this direction. Dignitaries present included Mr. Neeraj Arora, (CEO, Himalayan IT Solutions), Ms Priya Prakash (Educomp Foundation), Dr. Sushi Singh (Senior Consultant, Educomp Foundation). Mr. Arora & Ms. Prakash donated cheques to the girl children (Tannu, Neha & Nargis) who had previously been compelled to leave their education due to financial barriers: these donations will enable them to continue their studies.
JRE volunteers maintain a weekly check on the educational performance of the girls being supported, and recently visited the home of one girl child in an attempt understand obstacles to her education, and support where possible. Volunteers also made a visit to the Computer Literacy Drive Centre to examine the working of the project.
“Samanvaya-SRC” is making an effort to make a difference in society, and though the way ahead might be full of difficulties, they are determined in their efforts. In order to share the vision of the JRE group and the Educomp Foundation, this event also provided an opportunity for interaction with student volunteers from TERI University
Yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision. But a today well-lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.”
