EACH ONE EDUCATE ONE

India has always been the purveyor of eternal optimism. It’s looked up to as the model of utopian civilization and a way of living. Roman Rolland, the French Nobel Laureate says “If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India”.
The German Philosopher Max Muller says, “If I were to look over the whole world to find out the country most richly endowed with all the wealth, power, and beauty that nature can bestow—in some parts a very paradise on earth—I should point to India. If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions of some of them which well deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato and Kant—I should point to India. “
He continues to say “If India lives who dies, if India dies who lives”.
So, what is the unveiling secret of this grandeur glory of India? What is India’s strength to outweigh the weakness of the rest of the world? How did India achieve this pinnacle?
The answer is through Free Values Based Education System
This is a unique system of education, where the teaching is provided absolutely free of cost. It was popularly known as the “Gurukula system” located in the serene, fabulous and fascinating hamlets of India. With such deeply rooted integrated education system India could produce Great Seers, Thinkers, Philosophers, Artists, Leaders and Religious reformers. This moral fabric transmuted India to an incredible India.
But with frequent foreign invasions, India lost its golden charm. This very moral fabric was vandalized. Education became a commodity of mere learning. Instead of leading to elevation education lead to agitation. This man making education system drastically fell to mere mundane Money-making education. Optimism turned into vandalism. In times to come, India started charging booming fees for education. Virtues diminished and vices became the corner stone for the Lucrative Money-making education system. The exorbitant fee structure made rural India attain the galactic malady.
Just imagine the devastating condition of the world if the cradle of World civilisation starts to make business in the name of education!
So, who shall reform this saddening state of the Indian Education system? Who or what will be the curtain raiser? Will India regain its glory? How will the educational metamorphosis trigger?
The answer lies in
EACH ONE EDUCATE ONE
Alumni of the hallowed Sri Sathya Sai Educational Institutions at Alike, Muddennahalli, Puttaparthi, Whitefield and Anantapur campuses have come up with the yeomen flagship initiative called the EACH ONE EDUCATE ONE or E1E1 in short aiming to contribute to the transformative process of education.
It’s a sustainable model wherein the former beneficiaries of the Sathya Sai pedagogy – Free & Universal Education sponsor the school fees of a student who would be presently studying in these institutions. Each Alumni with the feeling of his or her own brother /sister studying in same institutions would sponsor the entire educational fees of that student thus enabling the re triggering of Free Value Based Integrated Educational System. Each One Educate One (e1e1) is an initiative to bring quality education to Rural India.
The insurmountable impact by these selfless acts of the Alumni would be imperative on the current studying students. This unique trait of selflessness would be embedded with their education and this baton of Selfless Service and Love is passed on to the next generation thus making them to transmute from Beneficiaries to Benefactors.
Each One Educate One so far has sponsored the education of more than 1000 rural school going children of the Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Group of Institutions.
Each One Educate One is not only the sustainable model but the thriving model to turn schools into “Temples of Learning”.
