Without doubt millions of people have been affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Things are getting better and people are getting help. I just wanted to link this tweet by UNICEF on the topic.

One of the major problems in education around the world is the children that lack the basic knowledge that every child should have the privilege of having. The main cause of that problem is these parents are poor so they are not able to pay for their children to have proper education.

This is a success story of a group of medical students who set out to provide health and education to the tribal and rural people. In 1984, a group of medical students at Mysore Medical College led by Dr. R. Balasubramaniam thought of making a difference and travelled to the sub-urban and tribal areas of Karanataka (India). With the help of the Mysore District Administration they set up a clinic in one of the tribal hamlets – Brahmagiri which is 80 km from Mysore. At present...

In India, Kerala has the second highest literacy rate after Tripura, being 93.91%. In the 1980s, Kerala with all its coconut and palm trees had a literacy rate almost equal to The United States which had skyscrapers and well-developed industries. Isn't it remarkable? Anthropologist Bill McKibben says "Though Kerala is mostly a land of paddy-covered plains, statistically Kerala stands out as the Mount Everest of social development; there's truly no place like it." Here's wha...

What started out as a simple idea slowly progressed into an actual plan of action. The student leaders of the school got together and discussed thoroughly various ideas that would help collect money...

Caught in an eddy of modern technologies, several communities have started to witness a bellicose between traditional and modern knowledge. Rational belief is considered to be the opposite of traditional knowledge by many. However, modern education is only an evolution of traditional indigeneous knowledge. For example, modern trigonometry had not evolved in a single day or due to the efforts of an individual. Its origin can be traced right form the time of Varamihira. He (Varamih...

Education is a right- if not a legal right, at least a human and moral right. Therefore, the phrase "Human Rights and Education", which is a very common one, becomes quite interesting. Why should "Human rights" and "Education" be written separately? Does the phrase not become repetitive, tautological? The phrase shows that there is a connection between education and other human rights. Education is perhaps the best way to tell people what their legal rights are. Knowing one's rig...

But now after a lot of group discussions and research, I’ve realised how much difference I can make as a member of society. We have looked up many case stu...
