न हि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित्रमिह विद्यते ।
तत्स्वयं योगसंसिद्धः कालेनात्मनि विन्दति ॥ ३८ ॥ “

In Sanskrit it is said that “Na Gyanen Sadrusham Pavitram Iha Vidyate” means nothing is more sacred than the education (knowledge).

India is a developing country. In last few years its rapid development made world to recognize India as a powerful country. Nowadays the importance of education has been recognized very well by Indian people. Percentage of educated people is gradually increasing in India.

Very well said by Will Durant, “Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance”. Education is important part of our life but education consists mainly of what we have unlearned. Free and compulsory education to all children up to the age fourteen is constitutional commitment in India. The Parliament of India has recently passed Right to Education Act through which education has become fundamental right of all children of age group 6-14 year. Lack of access to quality education is preventing millions of people from escaping the cycle of extreme poverty around the world. Most of the 67.5 million children still out of school are amongst the poorest and hardest to reach. More than half of them are girls, unfortunately, importance of girl`s education is not recognized by people in India.

Many of the children who do enroll in school are not graduating with even the most basic reading and math skills, often because their schools do not have enough teachers, books or facilities to provide a quality education. While many countries have opened school doors for millions in recent years by eliminating school fees, other costs such as uniforms and testing still prevent children from enrolling, and many poor families need their children (especially daughters) at home to help with chores including farming or collecting water.

Education not only provides children and families with a pathway out of poverty, but it can also yield even bigger returns for the world’s poorest countries through its impact on areas such as health and the economy. Educated mothers, for example, are more likely to have smaller families, and have their children immunized and send them to school. Education can also provide families and countries with more economic opportunities and help promote the civic participation that is critical to building democracies.

Many governments have taken the first step towards harnessing the potential of education by investing more resources into the sector. Sub-Saharan African countries, for example, sent 46.5 million children to school for the first time between 1999 and 2008 after many governments used some of the billions of dollars freed up by debt cancellation to help eliminate school fees.

Albert Einstein said “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school”.

Government reports indicate that 59 million children between 6-14 years do not attend school. Official information further indicates that just a little over one-third of all children who enroll in grade one reach grade eight. And this in a country which has made education for children in the age group 6-14 years a fundamental right?

Donate online for the education of poor children in India. Education charities can potentially play a vital role in the country’s development as educated children are the key to a bright future. Your help will go a long way in providing educational opportunities for children who would otherwise be left behind. with its diversity fascinates one and all. Indian Education has recently gained world recognition. Many students from foreign countries are eyeing the country for gaining higher qualifications. Though, illiteracy is a problem in India, the country amazes outsiders with its vast pool of talent.

The Indian economy has grown in leaps and bounds in the recent years and hence there is a necessity to educate the masses to accelerate the growth process. It is interesting to note how the Indian education machinery works.
