President Message

S. Nirmal Singh
President, CKD

The motto for my service to Chief Khalsa Diwan Charitable Society for the years to come shall be "Sikhi-te-Sikhya" (Spread of Sikhism and Education).

The educational system in the country has been facing hardships from the past several years due to lack of better facilities and opportunities for the youth to excel in their fields of interests. As a matter of fact, overall economic growth has remained disconnected from employment generation noting that young people continue to suffer from persistent unemployment and lack of quality job opportunities even after attaining best education. It is my personal belief that it is high time that such established organizations like Chief Khalsa Diwan Charitable Society must invest heavily into skill oriented education that helps to achieve the goals of utmost employment in the country. For this purpose, CKDCS has engaged in an Retd. IAS officer who will help to set up enough skill development centers for the students to benefit.

Apart from the employment concern, we have a target to uplift our rural institutions that are offering education to the local prodigy at very nominal charges. The infrastructural facilities, content and media of delivering information to them will surely be improving by leaps and bounds. We will invest into training of teachers from now on by integrating a system through which the highly experienced teachers will train the fresh ones at a centralized place and it is my firm belief that this step will extremely benefit the students in turn. The rural schools will be affiliated to CBSE and ICSE boards to further uplift the standard of institutions in accordance with modern beliefs.

In my opinion, we have been geographically confined to some very specific areas in Punjab where many schools, colleges, orphanages, old age homes and hospitals are being managed. I firmly believe that now we must move forward and open at least 20 schools in the areas where we do not have a presence yet. We really want to take the concept of cheap and quality education to the masses now and are already charting plans for the same.

A promise that we have already implemented in letter and spirit has been to make the books and uniforms available to our students on no profit no loss basis. Heavy discounts have been implemented already for the students and parents fraternity to benefit.

Furthermore, we are encouraging the education through smart boards and now is the era of technological advancements, the students must be able to think beyond just books and notebooks. Therefore the schools are being transformed to techno savvy centers of learning where there is much more than bookish knowledge to be imparted.

We are pledged to live up to the rising expectations of parents and setting a benchmark in the field of quality education.

Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji ki Fateh..!
