The DELHI WORLD FOUNDATION, a Dipsites Pedagogy System and Knowledge Initiative pioneered by a group of graduates from the Delhi World Public Schools who have since made a mark in the world, seeks to take education to a higher level. Not just rote learning and coaching the way to high scores and competitive examinations but an overall holistic comprehensive and focused initiative to produce all-rounded human beings. Of course, we intend to maintain the highest standards of education. That is a given. 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 not just this country but the world has to offer. To appreciate art as well as to create it through Pottery and Painting; Sculpture and Mosaic. 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 understand and appreciate the dire necessity of valuing our depleting wildlife, threatened environment and ecology. To bring to hem first-hand 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. As to express themselves on canvas of in stone or even just create a bonsai plant or a simple Ikebana
In simple words we want them to be children, leading an exciting child’s life and not be forced to become premature adults! Please join us and be part of our new adventure full of wonder and care.
