Children who are malnourished or even experiencing short-term hunger have limited capacities to learn. School feeding programs are a way to reduce hunger and improve the nutrition of children so that they are able to concentrate, understand and perform well academically. The meals that they receive at school contribute a great deal to better nourishment, good health and better academic performance for those children and their thinking ability is improved. This also lowers the burde...

What comes to your mind when you hear the term “Social Media?" Perhaps some people thinking about the media that makes them able to meet and communicate with people around the world. While some others think about that, social media is the channel that gives them the chance to send and receive many information. Others think that social media is about the way we get many updates from people who we follow and maybe someone out there thinks social media is a part of a new marketing s...

Society has always played a big part in constructing someone’s perspective about something. Every single aspect of society has always given the effect from and for each other; from the small family, extended family, children, friends, neighborhood, students, teachers, executives and even professionals. Society has the biggest responsibility to create and build a culture for themselves. The term “culture” that I use describes some activities which will always be a part of a so...

Investing in education is essential to developing a skilled workforce for the future and improving economic growth. As of 2011, more than 57 million primary aged children are still out of school and 130 million children have failed to learn the basics even after four years in school. A new Framework for Business Engagement in Education, launched at the UN Global Compact Leaders’ Summit last month makes the case for putting education at the centre of business investment. It provid...

And this is what I really worry about because I think we have no idea how to measure someone’s successes; either...

“Mother, you got bruises on your hand, and what’s wrong with your mouth, it looks like a dog attacked you.” “Nothing, I just fell down the stairs.” “Are you sure you’re okay.” “Yeah….I’ll be okay, don’t worry, all what you have to think about right now is your education, I don’t want you to live my life “ “Okay, I don’t want to be late then, the teacher told us to come earlier than usual to read our poems to each other.” “Alright, m...

We all know that education is a basic human right. The Right to Education Act in India describes the importance of free and compulsory education for all children between the ages 6 and 14, regardless of caste, creed, sex, religion etc. This includes differently-abled children. These children are, to an extent, receiving this education. But the quality of the education often isn’t good enough for them. Also, many schools do not have the necessary infrastructure to support these ch...

Many of us want to serve the society. We have numerous ideas of how to make the lives of the people in need better. But do we actually implement them? Dr.V.Uma (Masters in Mathematics, Education Management, Hindi, Sanskrit and Wasteland development) and her husband Mr.R.N.Muthuram(B.Com., M.Com., Masters in Education) have dedicated their whole lives to social service. At the age of 10 itself, both of them along with a group of their friends began helping to clean the school ground...
