Kids are learning about the world from their homes, from the community, classrooms, peer groups, media, and multiple other sources of information. Social Learning Theories tell us that learning can be shaped by the environment that we dwell in and the information we consume. In a constantly changing world, values are often the first casualty. In such an environment, for children to be prepared to handle the challenges of a fast changing world, holistic growth is critical. Dainik Jagran, through Sanskarshala , attempts to contribute to this holistic learning process - so that our kids of today become aware, responsible and confident young citizens of tomorrow.
Education isn't just about empowerment through knowledge. Parents, Educators and other responsible organizations should collaboratively guide and train the hearts, minds and abilities of children.

Children are the countrys future, so their holistic development is of immense importance and the responsibility of their progress is ours. The onus to do their bit for the growth of these children is not only on the parents but also on the schools, governments, society and other institutions.
Keeping that in mind, Dainik Jagran, the countrys biggest national daily, took a step in this direction and initiated the Jagran Sanskarshala last year, which aims at the overall enrichment of children.
Values not only enhance personality, but also inculcate a humane perspective in the mind of an individual. But in times of new-age technology, increasing competition, materialistic thinking and an endangered environment, even values too should be modern.
Last year Jagran Sanskarshala aimed at imparting cultural and corporate values to children.
This year Jagran Sanskarshala has been made more comprehensive and aims at educating the current generation for a better tomorrow, so that they can lead a successful and content life in the face of new challenges and give it a firm foundation.
