Brief: Education is the vehicle of knowledge, self-preservation and success. Education not only gives us a platform to succeed, it also provides us with qualities like strength, character and self respect. The greatest gift education gives us is the knowledge of unconditional love and a set of values.
These values include the simple difference between right and wrong, a belief in God, the importance of hard work and self respect. Education is a continuous learning experience; we learn from people, we learn from success and failures, we learn from leaders and followers, and we manage to grow up to be the person we are meant to be.
The Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF) is a New Delhi-based think tank set up with the collaborative efforts of India’s leading security experts, diplomats, industrialists and philanthropists under the aegis of the Vivekananda Kendra.
