Mission Education
Mission Education is a national level programme of YUG SHAKTI DHAM, which is committed to providing basic education and healthcare to underprivileged children. YUG SHAKTI DHAM believes that whether you are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights, there’s no better place to start than in the corridors of education.

Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life; means, because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one’s awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behavior to understanding one’s rights, and in the process evolve as a better citizen.

YUG SHAKTI DHAM’s educational initiatives include Pre-school [3-6 yrs], Non-Formal Education [6-14 yrs non-school going], Remedial Education [6-14 yrs school going] and Bridge Course [14-18 yrs drop-outs]. It works for education for underprivileged children who are under difficult circumstances, such as child labor, children of the poorest of the parents, children inflicted and affected with HIV/AIDS, street and runaway children, children with rare disabilities, disaster struck children and slum children. Special emphasis is given on girl education and women education so that they and their families get empowered.

We believe that the environmental damages we see around are the reflections of our own messed up minds, not knowing what to do with life or having no control over our body-mind. However, we don’t want to scare the people with the future of humanity with all statistics and sadness around. Nor do we want to simplify the complexities of modern economics by asking people to give up their basic right to enjoy the simple joys of human life. Instead, we want to give a positive experience of living in harmony with nature and an opportunity to reflect on the nature of Self and our purpose in life. We believe that the guests coming to our ashram is wise enough to connect with Nature, both internal and external, and choose an eco-friendly lifestyle naturally
