education has to holistically blend science with spiritual upliftment, in order to make the world a
better place to live in.

REACHING OUT TO THE UNDER PRIVILEGED


The Kalgidhar Society is a multifaceted, not for profit charitable organization working for the cause of
promoting quality Education, Healthcare, Women empowerment, Social welfare, Rural economic
uplift and Disaster response & rehabilitation to the deprived, in far-flung rural areas of North India. It
has been instrumental in bringing about silent but sure reforms to uplift the socio-economic status of
the rural poor in the areas covered. The rural areas of Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, backward
hilly areas of Himachal Pradesh and Punjab are being covered with 70 outstanding Schools affiliated
with The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Govt. of India, New Delhi. These Schools
provide modern education to 60,000 students mostly from deprived sections of the rural society.
A growing need for higher education for Women was felt, and Eternal University for Women was
started with Teachers Training, Nursing (state’s first), Engineering and Post-Graduation courses.

Many other programs like De-addiction Centers (on an improved pattern of Alcoholics Anonymous),
fully equipped Charity Hospital, Orphanage, Women Care Centre & Senior Citizen Centre are also run
by the TKS. Training and employment of rural youth especially focussed on Women Empowerment,
through Teachers Training, Embroidery, Stitching & Office management with computers is the latest
addition to these programs.
The mass urbanization is taking a toll on the rural masses and the scary results are already showing up
in the widening gap amongst the rich & poor. Ignorance & illiteracy in the rural folks, compounded by
the lack of health care needs, brings about helplessness in their lives. TKS having identified these root
causes, is methodically planning to take up the challenge of providing their services to the rural poor.
The strategy is simple yet effective- "Move away from urbanization", "Provide value based scientific
education & spiritual uplift" - "Reach out to the Underprivileged" with health care needs and create
an industrial base for their economic development.
Having felt the need to expand the scope of this noble cause, TKS plans to expand & branch out into far
flung rural areas by targeting 150 Schools within the next 2 years with assistance from Charitable
Institutions and worthy donors. Remarkably, session 2008-10 saw the addition of 48 new schools.
It is expected that a silent socio-economic uplift reform will result out of this sure-footed grass-root
effort. The footprints of "eradication of illiteracy &social evils" would keep on growing and positively
touch lives and fulfill needs of the rural poor & the deprived.

Sant Teja Singh on his vision for Baru Sahib.
Besides giving modern scientific education in its Academies (CBSE Schools), TKS lays more emphasis on value based
education of the children. The difference between value based education and literacy or so called education; when we
combine moral/spiritual values or spiritual values with literacy, it becomes value based education. Mere literacy in any
field of education gives birth to egoistic forces which creates selfishness, hatred and a complex of pseudo superiority &
intelligence, which leads to conflicts and wars thus robbing the wealth and values of the citizens and nations; walking the
path of selflessness and universal brotherhood by rendering the selfless help to the needy ones irrespective of caste,
creed and religion to get the blessings of the Almighty Lord for attaining Divine wisdom and salvation. The ultimate aim of
TKS is to produce virtuous persons who are able to reach the level of 'spiritual enlightenment' to establish permanent
peace and universal brotherhood in this world. These children having imbibed the virtues can become the leaders &
torch-bearers for others as well; thereby helping eradicate social evils amongst their contacts. Experience tells that, one
morally enlightened child can influence 30-35 members of the society.

Social Welfare
Campaign to Control HIV / AIDS
Health Education Camps: The Kalgidhar Society has pitched in to help control of HIV / Aids in the states of
Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. Volunteers of the Society along with state Department Officials

gratifying results. At the end of the camp, all participants were thankful for the awareness created and took
an oath for not risking unsafe sex.
similarly, seminars were organized in all Akal Academies (Grade IX to XII) in which parents of students also
participated. All students and parents vowed to make efforts to fight the menace of AIDS and purge it from
the society.
A Book on AIDS: A widely acclaimed book entitled "AIDS - How, When, Why " has been printed in Hindi and
distributed free of cost among the people. This contains information in simple manner on every hidden
aspect of AIDS.

SOCIAL WELFARE

Child Welfare Centre:


The Kalgidhar Society runs an orphanage under the name 'Akal Child Welfare Foundation' at Baru Sahib,
which looks after the needs of those unfortunate children, who have lost both their parents at an early
age. These orphaned children, irrespective of their caste, creed, religion or region to which they belong,
are provided all the facilities free of cost, enabling them to become responsible, honest, hard working
citizens and a source of strength for the country.

800 children benefit from the Akal Child Welfare Foundation. It looks after all their basic needs
including boarding, lodging, educational and health needs. These children are provided free
education at Baru Sahib & other branches and are given the same facilities as other
students of the Academy. They are well treated by the organisation as well as the fellow
students so that they don't develop any inferiority complex of being orphans.

Women Empowerment

Akal Rozgar Yojana for Women Empowerment:


The Kalgidhar Society has initiated a unique socio-economic empowerment program under Akal
Rozgar Yojana for rural/needy women and widows at Baru Sahib and village Cheema benefitting 2500
such unfortunate women who have lost their husbands or have been discarded by their families or are
unable to earn/desire to earn their livelihood. ARY ensures a life of honor and transformation for these
women by imparting them with stitching, embroidery and hand work skills on garments. These
vocational courses are conducted by skilled instructors at the Eight ARY centres and in-house
requirements and market productions are tied up with exporters and domestic traders to generate
revenues and profits for them enabling them to earn handsome incomes. Immense change has been
seen in the confidence levels, self-respect and morale of these women who till now were feeling
wasted or doing menial jobs.
Plans are to replicate the ARY program manifolds in almost all the rural areas of North India by roping in
own trained womenfolk as Course instructors on salaries thereby creating new avenues of
employment for them.
Around 2000 young matriculate girls have been picked up to undergo a 4-year graduation course in
Teachers Training with all expenses being borne by the TKS. They are immediately given job
opportunities on graduation.
