An Appeal for Vidya Daanam

via Narain Kataria published on February 26, 2009

A team of young, intelligent professionals, fired with the zeal to serve the community has launched a project entitled “Vidya Daanam”.  Vidya Daanam is a Sanskrit phrase that essentially means ‘The Gift of Education’.

There is an ancient saying in India that goes like this – “Anna daanam maha daanam; Vidya daanam mahattaram. Annena kshanika trupthihi Yaavajjeevanthu vidyaya”.

It means that giving food to a hungry person is indeed a great donation, but the greatest donation of all is to give a person Education. Food gives but a momentary satisfaction whereas Education empowers the person for his entire life.

“Vidya Daanam” is a program that is designed to empower under-privileged children born in rural and remote tribal areas in India by providing them the opportunity of an adequate modern
education.

Recently I had an occasion to go to Dallas .  I was very impressed to note the commitment and dedication of the volunteers to this cause.
