According to Dr Davinder Singh, Secretary, The Kalgidhar Society, Baru Sahib, “It’s been quite a challenging yet flourishing odyssey for us, provided our continuous focus on the enduring values of ‘simple living-high thinking’, love, compassion, professionalism, honesty, and integrity. It is a matter of great pride for our team that over the 34 years, we’ve been able to be the absolute benchmark for quality values-based education in rural areas of North India. This comes as a fresh whiff of air for this unsung unassuming fountainhead that for decades now has been advancing all aspects of life: education, health, socio-economic-moral empowerment in rural North India.”
Dr Neelam Kaur, Principal, Akal Academy IB World School and a noted Educationist and renowned health professional said “Akal Academies are shrines of education that nurture and attract the simplest and most deprived human talent and open a window to science, art and elevated thinking. Students respond by exploring worlds inner and outer, they never before imagined. We map the child’s heart to create an enabler that spreads love and compassion. We examine the society around us, its advantages and its threats, and develop ways to make the globe a safer, peaceful, sustainable, sensitive, more equitable place. Our alumni are equally outstanding, shaping society with their leadership, creativity and innovation yet remain firmly rooted to the basic values and stand out with their simplicity and sensitivity.”
It is always refreshing to see such organisations getting recognition for their ‘Lessons of Humanity’ keeping in mind the spiritual message of ‘recognize entire human race as one’.
