DELHI WORLD FOUNDATION
Despite a Pedagogy System and Knowledge Initiative pioneered by a group of graduates from the Delhi Public Schools who have since made a mark in the world, seek to take education to a higher level an overall holistic, comprehensive and focussed initiative to produce all-rounded human beings. What we emphasize is the road we are taking to get there – perhaps the road less travelled but a road which we hope is filled with adventure, with curiosity, with wonder.
This is a challenge that we at the Delhi World Foundation have taken up in earnest. The wealth of knowledge and experience of our Life Trustees, Term Trustees, Advisory Council and Members of the Education & Resource Council is being harnessed to open our students’ eyes to all the wonderful things that the world has to offer. To appreciate art as well as to create it, to establish their own individual identity through creativity. To not only carve a Printing Block or make Handmade Paper out of rags and waste but also to carry it further by printing on the paper and then on to adding value by making greeting cards, stationery, decorative boxes, etc.
Modules are being created for our children to engage in Self Care, Social Service, Animal Welfare and Environment protection. To make them appreciate, understand and anticipate the dire necessity of valuing our depleting wildlife, threatened environment and ecology. To bring to them firsthand knowledge and information of new energy saving techniques and technology – Solar Energy, Rainwater Harvesting and just simple Vermi composting from household waste. They are encouraged to take time off from cramming for exams and tests to take part in Drama, Elocution, Music and all those varied expressions of impulsive creativity. So as to express themselves on canvas or in stone or even just create a bonsai plant or a simple Ikebana.
