Welcome to KARVE Education Group
The 21st century with unlimited flow of information, people and capital, poses new challenges for the current and coming generations-challenges that most educational institutions in India are yet to acknowledge. Future generation leaders will need enhanced problem solving and decision making capabilities, high level communication skills and an ability to collaborate with people across many different cultures.
KARVE is committed to developing solutions to these complex challenges.
Our vision is to create resources in the Indian education sector that will help in building a stronger nation and better citizens. We want to improve our human capital by helping individuals realize their true potential, through quality education, and help our nation to do better in the years ahead.
- Aurobindo quotes "True knowledge is not attained by thinking. It is what you are; it is what you become." And what a child becomes is largely influenced by teachers and gurus. He emphasizes on the people behind MAN MAKING -TEACHERS. According to him a teacher is not one who just imparts information, but one who can inspire a change in the impulses of the pupil's growing personality. A teacher inspires and leads the student towards the field he/she is destined for. From Aurobindo, we imbibe the importance of a teacher who grooms a well balanced human being with the right knowledge, power, love and skills that are relevant for keeping this planet sustainable.
- Rabindranath Tagore quotes "The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence". He stressed on 'naturalism' for framing the educational model. The extract of his philosophy is that, the best learning will happen only in a natural environment along with appropriate co-curricular activities and when the learner is given freedom to learn.
- Education is the manifestation of perfection already in Man has been said by "Swami Vivekananda" one of the Pioneers of the Modern Education System of India. According to him Education means "MAN MAKING". It is the process by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, and intellect is sharpened, as a result of which one can stand on one's own feet. Our methodology is based on Vivekananda's Heuristic approach towards education.
