One world, One nation by quality education.
Explain your idea in details:
I personally believe that we can achieve anything in this whole world if we give our heart and mind to it. Though the title seems highly unrealistic I still believe nothing is impossible. My objective is to remove all borders from the world map and this can be achieved by imparting quality education starting from the nascent stage. I believe children to be gods incarnation and with quality education and proper guidance they can play a vital role in the future. They will learn to respect each other views , respect religion and most importantly respect the culture wherever they go. The famous proverb 'Pen is Mightier than the Sword' written by Edward Bulwer- Lytton can be a reality if everyone realizes the potential of quality education. With sword we end up with destruction and with education we keep the world united and as one. Innovative approach: My approach will be to target the age group between 6-18. I would mix education with activities in such a way that apart from getting mental strength with education children are also getting physically fit by way of various activities. A blend of sports and education will bring out the best in each and every child, and who knows they might go on to become the furure messis, ronaldos, mother teressa and nelson mandela. Action plan: To begin with we need to make sure each and every girl child is on boarded and she is given quality education which can make her to stand on her feet on her own. A mother is the best teacher as per one saying and we firmly believe that It is the mother who sees the first smile in the lips of the child and makes it a permanent one with her teaching.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Targets: Imagine a world where hatred and destruction is replaced with love and affection. Children's going on to become Intellectuals through quality education and no country is above other in terms of law and order. Success evaluation: If we are able to roam around across countries without any hindrance, feel like being at home away from home then the world will be at peace and no human will feel threatened. Now people in world live with fear of being killed anytime and any moment. If education can play a vital role in educating the so called terrorists to learn the moral values and respect individuals then that would be the greatest moment of my life. I believe no one is a born terrorist with criminal mindset. It is the circumstances which make or break. If tomorrow we see a culture of brotherhood and love in the air, then education and upbringing holds the key. We can achieve this ultimate goal for sure and as per Theodore Roosevelt "Believe you can and you're halfway there". This belief in one's own strength plays a vital role in paving the pathway which leads to the ultimate goal of sustainable development through quality education.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
My business model will be very simple in terms of implementation. I would divide my model into two parts; Part A: Ensuring all the children goes to school for education. Part B: Emphasizing on moral studies and yoga apart from other regular subjects. In brief: Part A- A survey needs to be done and we need to find how many children are not being sent to schools because of reasons what so ever. I will create a team of dedicated youth members who can work out on this idea. We need to talk to their parents and work out on an idea where we can convince them to send their wards to school. Ill build a community of likeminded people who share the same thoughts and believe in doing something for the society. People with teaching background can be given preferences to achieve my goal. Part B-Some children get easily bored of regular sports or curriculum and divert their mind easily to other unscrupulous things which might not be of serious nature at that moment. If a check is not brought about at this time it will develop into a habit and ruin his life in the future. Emphasis must be given to moral studies and its values which will help the students to have self-control. Yoga also plays a vital role in keeping sync between mind and body, helping them to be wiser and control their thought process. One of my friend who is a certified yoga trainer has been a inspiration to me in many ways. This experience will definitely help me in achieving greater goals.
My name is P Satyabrat. Im from a small district called Angul in Odisha, India. I am a banker by profession from the last 9 years and aged 35 years. Right now I'm posted in the beautiful city of hyderabad. Having worked in some rural branches in the initial stage of my career, I have come across communities which don't even have access to basic education. This made me think and motivated me to work for the upliftment of the society. In the name of marketing I would be conducting banking awareness among the less privileged and this gave me immense pleasure, a sense of achieving something. I have never run behind awards and recognition. I should be able to carve out a niche for myself in the minds of people world over and that would be the greatest achievement for me.
