    Swami Vivekananda emphasized, "We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one-s own feet". .

    To celebrate this great event Ramakrishna Mission Sevashrama, Vrindaban, a branch of Ramakrishna Mission, Belur Math, has the privilege to conduct Swami Vivekananda Bal Vikas Yojana to aims for all-around development of children up to age of 12 years from poor and backward areas and improvement of their health through elimination of malnutrition, immunization etc. .

    Conclusion:  
    Swami Vivekananda had a vision that India would rise from its slumber and lead humanity. Absence of education and proper opportunities makes such children ignorant of their human dignity and the rich heritage and glorious past of their country. They need to be made aware of the human dignity, their rich past and proud to be Indians.

    Feel, my children, feel; feel for the poor, the ignorant, the downtrodden; feel till the heart stops and the brain reels and you think you will go mad - then pour the soul out at the feet of the Lord, and then will come power, help, and indomitable energy.
