Wat volgt is een persoonlijke noot van Father Joby:
Discrete Tending and Inspiration
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world and the function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically, intelligence plus character, which is the goal of true education. The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows and the only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.Better education is very necessary for all to go ahead in the life and get success. It develops confidence and helps building personality of a person and school education plays a great role in everyone’s life. Keeping all these ideas in mind, BDS provide ample education opportunities for the poorest children of the society in collaboration with SIDE BY SIDE INDIA.
As the director of BDS I have the privilege of visiting a lot of schools every year to ensure that the students sponsored by us do not go astray from the future we have dreamt for them and I'm always leery of any school that doesn't offer full access. This year too I have completed my visits to the schools in which our sponsored students are heading to the fulfillment of their dreams. I have met the principals of the schools or colleges in the presence of our students and evaluated their progress in studies and in extracurricular activities. I have also gone through their first semester formative assessment report and urged them to improve and discover new heights in their lives.
All throughout my visit I was happy to see the progress and improvement our students have achieved and most of them are eager to move forward with much enthusiasm and vigor. I have also given some strict instructions to a few students who lack a standard performance and motivated them to have a better achievement next time. I have also met their respective class teachers urging to have a little more special attention in their cases. I have instructed our students that all money in the world will not give you satisfaction and prestige as the education can.Fostering basic principles of humanity and reasoning, the modern education is an eye opener for you and a balanced life and reputed standing in society is only possible with the shining light of knowledge.
