My name is Kashyap Jothish . I am 25 years old and an alumni of Chinmaya International Residential School, Coimbatore.
I have undertaken this campaign because I believe that the right education is the foundation for life’s journey. I was fascinated by the 3 pronged approach of this campaign and the impact it will make. This is truly about REIMAGINING EDUCATION in India.
1)The uniqueness of the Chinmaya University (CVV) – a global university that will transform the lives of future generations of students. This will impact and change the future. The Indian Knowledge Systems(IKS), a part of the University curriculum, has the ability to integrate the best of both Eastern and Western Thought.
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 very 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.
