Chairmans Message

Education empowers an individual. Education is all about dignity. Education drives away Ignorance and through illumination it emboldens a man to a righteous thought and action. It empowers a woman and enlarges the horizon of her mind. It energizes a person and enables him to earn his living with respect and dignity. 'Education has an acculturating role. It refines sensitivities and perceptions that contribute to national cohesion, a scientific temper and independence of mind and spirit --thus furthering the goals of socialism, secularism and democracy enshrined in our constitution'. Education helps a man to become a more responsible citizen. The country has reached a stage in its economic and technical development when a major effort must be made to drive the maximum benefit to all sections of the society. The fruits of change and the overall growth should percolate to the lowest strata of the society. Education is the High Way to that goal.

"There has been an increasing awareness that the people of the country should be looked upon as its valuable resource, indeed the most valuable resource and that our growth process should be based on the integrated development of the citizen, beginning with childhood and going right through life. It is increasingly realized that all relevant instruments and agencies contributing to or responsible for this growth should be integrated in order to ensure all-round development."- On the lines of this spirit, I have the confidence and conviction that my Trust's trusted soldiers can carry the torch of learning further ahead , with added strength, courseware, qualitative dissemination of knowledge, virtue and morality. It may become a brilliant morning star in the arena of qualitative education, research and an unending contribution to man and society at large.

Against this background, it gives me immense pleasure to announce the commencement of this Non- Formal Distance and Continuing Education Programs to promote greater access to quality education for school drop-outs, children and girls, working-class men and women who cannot attend whole day schools. Through our quality delivery system, we endeavour to provide good education for all at their door steps and consequently achieve the target of Universalisation of Education' at the primary, upper primary, secondary and higher secondary level. It is now acknowledged by the academicians of all shades that it is "Learning" which is important and not the channel or the process through which one gets enrolled for education. I whole heartedly thank the parents, guardians and the students for their faith in us for being a part of our endeavour and patronizing the initiatives of our Trust.

Sincerely yours,

Chairman, SVSSSOE, Delhi
