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...

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...

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” — Leo Tolstoy Life is not easy as everyone knows, but even people all over the world have an idea about poverty, violence, wars and more.

She should inspire us all to push help ensure a safe and equal education for all people all around the world. This has to start by changin...

Ban Ki Moon,Secretary of the General of the United Nations once said "When we put education first, we can reduce poverty and hunger, end wasted potential - and look forward to stronger and better societies for all." This is true because worldwide 57 million children do not have access to a classroom. Not only that, but One in six people can not read or write.
