Underlying the initiative and
activities of the Sunrise Centre is the philosophy of neohumanism.
Propounded by the Indian philosopher P.R. Sarkar and based on the
worldview that every entity is connected in the web of life, neohumanism
stands for expansive love and respect for all creation; humans, animals,
plants and the inanimate world alike.
Just as different aspects of life are interrelated, so needs to be their development. In this regard, learning, as life, becomes a journey of discovery of the world and ourselves, and education from a neohumanistic point of view facilitates this journey.
Educational programmes at the
Sunrise Centre offer learning opportunities for all, through courses and
workshops with an emphasis on practical learning and hands-on experience.
Drama, games, the arts, stories and projects serve as vehicles for
learning, and each student is encouraged to explore ways to succeed,
achieve a personal best and find a sense of purpose in life. As learning
becomes an enjoyable and empowering experience, the student's enthusiasm,
motivation, self-confidence and achievements increase.
