SAVE THE QUEST
Save The Quest (STQ) is a charitable trust registered under the Indian Trust Act of 1882, Section 60 (Registration no. 504) based in Delhi. STQ believes in bringing revolution through education. This organisation was started by some college students, which now consists of a dedicated team of hundreds of volunteers who advocate the philosophy of bringing about revolutionary changes in the society by making education more flexible, more liberal, holistic and skill based; and over the years, focus on children with disabilities has resulted in greater awareness and increased sensitivity towards these children.
Education is one of the fundamental rights of human beings but unfortunately a few children are deprived of this right. There are over 70 million differently abled people in india. They, irrespective of their economic status, are subject to social exclusion in the society. Economic, psychological and social confidence building is therefore necessary. Thus, we at STQ, assist differently abled children with their education and hope to lay a strong foundation for the challenged children to construct a better future for many of them. Disability is a physical or mental impairment that infers with the performance of activities expected of an individual of a certain age. So there is an urgent need to nurture and support the differently abled children at an early age in order to assimilate in the workforce and enable them to live a life with dignity and contribute to the GNP.
The society we live in is plagued by prejudices and clichéd notions. Differently abled, orphans or the financially weak are easy targets of these judgmental eyes. It is high time these targets are appreciated for their ability, for their passion, for their conviction. They are different, but not an outsider. We at STQ make them a part of the society; we become one of them and work as a team. Our volunteers act as friends and mentors to imbibe the right values and educate them.
You show them one glimpse of belongingness and they embrace you
I) Our goal is to bring about revolutionary, positive changes in the society by the means of education. We stand for student rights and uphold the philosophy of pragmatic, quality-based and quest-based studies.
Societies are built in classrooms. This has struck a deep chord with us at Save The Quest. Started by a group of college students, STQ strongly believes that education will be the game-changer for the future of our country and the world . Education will enable a generation with level-playing field, so that everyone is competent and charity is no longer required. This is the revolution which we have, this is the dream we strive to achieve. Education in India is more like a book that students are supposed to rote learn. The practicalities of what we are taught are hardly ever impressed upon us. Also, in school, when a human being is at the most impressionable age, much more effort should be made to build a morally strong person, with right values and judgments. This is the kind of education which we strive to include in our syllabus- pragmatic, holistic, flexible and above all, quest-based..
