Swami Vivekananda Said : “ My faith is in the younger generation, the modern generation; out of them will come my workers. They will work out the whole problem, like lion.”.
Arunachal Pradesh has a value-based and community-oriented education, we see in these communities no beggars, no orphans and destitute. There are no locks on the houses or the granaries. The principle of living is “one for all and all for each.” When anyone wants to build a house, the whole community works together to build it. If any house gets burnt, the whole village works to rebuild it and all houses in the village come together to provide materials. Thus within twenty-four hours a well-furnished house is ready for the family. When a whole village is burnt, nearby villages come together, rebuild the houses and even furnished them. The society is a living society; so it responds to the needs of its members immediately. Thus it does not need an orphanage or a destitute home or police force, or even government welfare schemes, as the society itself is a welfare society. And yet the missionaries want to “civilize” them! Wherever conversions take place, these traditional values are lost.
This dictum prompted Mananeeya Eknathji to accept the invitation of the then Lt. Governor shri K.A.A. Raja and Vivekananda Kendra commenced its activities in Arunachal Pradesh in 1974 and in 1977 seven “Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalayas” were started. There were absolutely no basic services like pre-primary education, medical aid etc in the interior villages. To provide these facilities to every nook and corner of the Arunachalee society, Vivekananda Kendra Arun Jyoti - a service project was started in 1993 with the motto - “Development Through Culture”.
