My name is Soham Desai, and I am a Strength & Conditioning coach with the Indian Cricket Team,
I have undertaken this campaign because I believe that the ‘right education’ is the foundation for life’s journey.
Through my schooling years at Chinmaya Int. Resi. School, and by being associated with Chinmaya Yuva Kendra, I have been a witness to the impact value based education can create. Along with the blessings of my parents, whoever and wherever I am today is all because of the values and virtues I could cultivate with years of association with Chinmaya Mission.
Chinmaya Mission under the leadership of Swami Swaroopanandaji are setting out to bring to life Chinmaya University (CVV), there’s no doubt that through this project they will revive the educational system. This will go down as a landmark moment in Global Education ecosystem.
Personally, I was thrilled to know that I could be a part, and contribute to this immensely noble vision. I am especially fascinated by the 3 pronged approach of this campaign, and the lasting impact it will have.
1)The uniqueness of the Chinmaya University (CVV) – a global university that will transform the lives of future generations of students - inside out. This will impact and change the future.
2) In the immediate present being able to impact the lives of underprivileged students from Chinmaya Vidyalaya’s across India by supporting their education is a extremely high-impact initiative. The parents of these students are typically daily wage workers and many of them are illiterate and do not realise how critical education is.
3) Again in the present the Chinmaya schools need better infrastructure. The lack of it definitely impacts the quality of education and the school environment & this is a critical need.
Brick by brick, let us come together and make sure that this ‘One Knowledge – One World’ initiative is realised within our lifetimes.
