Shri Ramakrishna Ashrama, Rajkot

Value Education : For Youth

Reading Room

Vivekananda Reading Room for Students

Swami Vivekananda says, ‘My faith is in the young generation’. Elsewhere he mentions, ‘Education is the panacea of all problems of India’. Keeping these words of Swamiji as the guiding principle, Shri Ramakrishna Ashrama, Rajkot has been working in the field of value-based, man-making and character-building education for many years.

During the interaction with the students of Rajkot, we found that the students often lack a peaceful environment to study with concentration. In order to help these students to study properly, the Ashrama has started a ‘Reading Room facility’ for graduate and post-graduate male students in the VIVEC building of the Ashrama.

Salient features of the Reading Room:

A Youth Library comprising of books on value education, self-development and study material (books & CDs) useful for various competitive and career oriented exams and courses is also being maintained for the use of the students.
