Annie Besant School run by Besant Education Fellowship is located in the heart of the city of Varanasi at Kamachha. The school was founded in 1952 as Shishu Vihar. In 2005 Shishu Vihar and Annie Besant Primary School were merged and renamed as Annie Besant School. It was upgraded in 2015. Now the students from Class Prep to Class VIII are getting value based education in a beautiful ambiance of the Theosophical Society Indian Section Kamachha.
Now a days subject learning has become more important than education for life. The civilization is moving at a breakneck speed, but off the track. How pathetically true and apt is the statement in the context of present world situation.
The whole world is running in the blind race for achieving material affiances and success but this outward achievement is creating a vacuum in the inner self. It is high time now that we asked ourselves this burning question where we are heading towards? What do we want to achieve? What is our ultimate aim? What is the difference between literacy and education?
