Children's Freedom Movement

India is on way to becoming economical super-power, but our country is still suffering from large issues like corruption, poverty, unemployment and pollution etc. Take corruption, for example. Is it possible to have this problem unless educated people are not party to this? Aren't people who are at the helm of the affairs, who have power and position are the only one who actively instigate and participate in this problem? So there has to be something seriously wrong in our education system that promotes such self-centered notion of success.

 

Corruption is only one issue. India is facing many such issues. Any person who has thought in-depth about the issues plaguing our society knows that the answers lie in Education. But our education has gone haphazard somewhere. As George Bernard Shaw says, "What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child."

 

Education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't. The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change because life is not what happens to us. It is what we do with what happens to us. Has our education fulfilled the purposes that it is required to?

 

Oasis feels that we have a long way to go in this direction. But nevertheless, we have to begin from somewhere. Inculcating right values in the next generations is the only way out. Thus Oasis has launched a program titled as 'Indian Young Leadership Development Program' and the concept of 'Oasis Freedom Camps' (Primarily Life Camps, Love Camps & Dream India Camps to supplement and complement our present Educational System. However, in the long term we aim to influence radical changes in the present Educational System. This is how we wish to take the first steps.

 

Oasis is an organization which actively works for development of youths. After 20 years of rich experience, it has now launched a project to orient 1 lac youths in coming years for educating towards the powerful principles of Life. This program will also offer Self-development Circles and Oasis Freedom Camps to inculcate sense of responsibility and civility amongst the youths.

 

Education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't. The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change because life is not what happens to us. It is what we do with what happens to us. Has our education fulfilled the purposes that it is required to?
