“Education is the most powerful weapon which can be used to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela
At Jaypee we firmly believe that Education is the cornerstone to economic development and the strength of 1 billion Indians can be channelized by education alone to build India into a developed nation. The real future of India lies—in its thousands of faceless little towns and villages, where millions of boys and girls lie awake at night, dreaming of what could be. And we also believe that the key to unlock those dreams and help them soar is a good education.
The Sardar Patel Vidyalayas were set up with the express purpose of bringing free primary education to areas that had abysmally low literacy levels.
Today, there are several Sardar Patel Vidyalayas, Jaypee Vidya Mandirs and other primary schools, that give students from the poorest families, access to free education, a free mid-day meal and uniform to make it easier for their families to excuse them from helping around the home and farm. These institutions of learning host the best of faculty and educational infrastructure towards creation, generation, dissemination and application of knowledge through an innovative teaching – learning process to mould the leaders of tomorrow. The institutions have well equipped libraries and ICT based learning. Physical training and various life skills programmes are built into the curriculum. Scholarships for meritorious students for pursuing higher learning are other aspects of the education programme. Besides, coaching is provided for competitive exams such as entrance for ITI s, NDA exams, etc and several students from humble village background have qualified.
Our adult literacy classes don’t stop at teaching people to write their names. From filling government forms, to making bank withdrawals, our programme is designed to impart a range of practical skills that help individuals integrate better into a modernizing society. Village children are initiated into the learning atmosphere through ` Balwadis’ which deploy interesting and creative learning methodology.
But, best of all, there are hundreds of heart-warming success stories that these schools have helped spark over several years of their existence. As much as our achievements across our core business areas, these are what make the business of doing business truly worthwhile.
