OUR INITIATIVES

VIVEKDEEP - 1st Feb 2020 (Jan CSR) Organised by Udit Bagai

Inspired by the famous exhortation of Sw. Vivekananda – “They alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive”, a value based initiative by the name ‘Vivekdeep’ is launched for under privileged children in Dwarka, New Delhi. The experiment started in April 2014 with 25 slum children. Parents of these children build our society as masons, gardeners, vegetable vendors and house maids.

Real education is the need of hour. Education should be such that it will clear the ‘Conscience ( Vivek)’ of the learner and act as a ‘light(deep)’. With this light of conscience, the child will then easily distinguish between right and wrong, true and false and never falter in the walk of life. Hence ‘Vivekdeep’ was lighted.
