Women Empowerment: Girl Child Education
Ved Vignan Maha Vidya Peeth
“Basic human values need to be encouraged in the classroom. A child is born with these values and a teacher needs to uncover them.” – Sri Sri
Over the last three decades, The Art of Living has been revolutionizing education in India. Importance has been given to promoting girl child education, reaching out to underprivileged sections of society, and integrating human values into the educational system.
It is only through education that social transformation and economic freedom can be sought. Today, women are leaders who epitomize the human values of caring, sharing and re-building societies free of stress and violence.
Ved Vignan Maha Vidya Peeth (VVMVP) is an educational, charitable trust committed to providing holistic education to children in rural areas. VVMVP started its first free rural school in the outskirts of Bangalore in 1981 with 30 children. Over the years the numbers have grown to 2000 students from 51 surrounding villages.
