'Education with Purpose' is an international project formed by passionate youths in order to create a balance in the educational system globally. In pursuit of SDGs4, 'Quality Education'. As canvassed by SDGs, it is pertinent to take into cognisance the responsibility of parents, tutors, school administrators and other bodies concerned, but not at the detriment of a CHILD'S PURPOSE.
Purpose had been grossly undermined in the learning process of an average child globally while a myopic focus on conducive learning environment, certified tutors, and emphasis on passing examinations had been given undue priorities.
Education with purpose stems from a passion to see our world change. But this can't be achieved without us changing from within first. Our orientation, what motivate us, our drives and passion need to be in line and with sincere motive.
Quoting Chinese philosopher, Confucius;
"Citizens who wished for peace in the kingdom, first must governed/ordered well their states. Wishing to order well their states, they first regulated their families. Wishing to regulate their families, they first cultivated their persons. Wishing to cultivate their persons, they first rectified their hearts, wishing to rectify their hearts, they first sought to be sincere in their thoughts. Wishing to be sincere in their thoughts, they first extend to the utmost their knowledge. Their knowledge being complete, their thoughts were sincere. Their thoughts being sincere, their hearts were then rectified. Their hearts being rectified; their persons were cultivated..."
Before a person can be a good citizen that will make a tremendous change and bring positive transformation to his/her environment, he/she must have an accurate knowledge of who he/she is beyond his/her present physical realities. His/her ability to grab the vision of who he/she is, will enable him/her to begin to cultivate himself/herself towards the person in his/her vision.
The knowledge we seek to bring or help our target to discover are;
- Their PURPOSE
- Their INNATE ABILITIES/SKILLS
- Their PASSION
The cultivation of our project is to bring them to the realization of their purpose, plant their skills and abilities into the fertile ground of their purpose and water it by fueling and enriching their passion through purposeful education.
"The knowledge and cultivation of the person is the root of every other things. A man act according to the extent of his knowledge. It can never be that when the root of a thing is neglected that what should spring from it should be well ordered.” Confucius
Therefore, OUR PROJECT IS THE CULTIVATION OF A PERSON.
