“Children are the world’s most resource and its best hope for the future”- John F Kennedy
Children are the light of the society. Tomorrow’s future of the society depends upon the today’s children. Today the situations have changed in getting the children educated by making them sit in the four walls of the class-room. But it is all about the holistic development. A rank holder at studies may not rank in the society. A man with human values, right judgment and capable discretion has respect in the society. The education system has become so challenging today. It needs to be updated to make children love learning through innovative way of leaning. Children are the source they are the future. With all this aspects in mind the Sneha Jyothi Boarding has been trying its best from many years to give children not only the accommodation and food but also a valuable opportunity, spirit filled and humane atmosphere to bloom and enjoy their childhood through learning and activities.
