"Safety and security don't just happen; they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear." – Nelson Mandela
Children are the future of a nation. They are the best change agents, be it in the family or the society in which they live. It is therefore critical to catch them young and instill in them feelings of compassion and ethics so that they grow up as responsible individuals.
In evaluation of this need, Rajeesh Trust proposed Programmes for the Privileged Children in the year 2013. In alerting the privileged children and their parents, towards the existing disparity around them, is a significant goal of Rajeesh Trust.
Privileged children are sensitized about the deficiency and pain suffered by their less privileged counterparts. Rajeesh Trust seeks to indoctrinate ethics and value system in the children so that they grow up to become responsible citizens of tomorrow’s world. Before their minds are set with age, the programme tries to make them count their own blessings and understand the predicament of less privileged ones. Once they start realizing the worth of the privileges they are born with, they automatically turn their thoughts towards positivity and develop the right outlook. This eventually helps them develop into not only successful but accountable individuals in life. They grow up to become noteworthy change makers, who contribute positively to the society.
Under this programme, Rajeesh Trust visits various schools and conducts engaging sessions for the young minds. It sensitizes children towards various causes and let them realize their privileged status.
Through this programme, Rajeesh Trust brings privileged and underprivileged children on the same platform too. It not only helps the privileged children realize their harmony in life but also enhances the self-confidence of the less privileged counterpart.
Rajeesh Trust currently reaches out innumerous privileged children in many schools spread across the areas of India, every year. In addition, their parents and teachers are also involved in the process. The programme has today reached out to each part of India.
