Education is indispensable for it empowers individuals to realise their full potential and maximise their contribution to society. I believe that students must never stop expanding the horizons of their knowledge, and prevent self-doubt from infiltrating the fertile pastures of their minds. In this regard, it is our duty to ensure the education of each and every child, mitigating any socio-economics disparities that may prove to be hindrance in self realisation.
However, in a day and age of blatant disrespect and discrimination against women, imparting education to all our girls is of all the more consequence. Education brings about rationality in thought and practice; a virtue I believe is utmost important in the way women perceive themselves. Further, it opens new windows to the world and expose them to realities far away from their physical reach. It empowers one to contribute, both in personal as well as social surroundings, thus gaining respect and confidence. Most importantly, educating girls will ensure sustainable employment leading to economics independence and self reliance.
To that end, NCWEB is an institution which sets an example to be followed, as it has widened the ambit of education for women. It meets the need of the hour, as it opens new doors for girls so far devoid of an option to be educated. Uniquely conceptualised, it utilises present infrastructural facilities without imposing any financial burden on the authorities. Similarly it uses the academic fraternity of colleges and University Departments on Sundays and academic breaks to teach 23000 plus students registered with both at UG and PG levels. The effectiveness and popularity of the system can be realized from the fact that not only have we been able to achieve excellent results but there has also been a progressive increase in the total enrollment and the number of centers which today stands at 26, spread all across NCT.
It will not be out of place to put on record, the appreciation for the hard work done by my predecessor, Former Director, Dr.(Mrs.) Aarti Saxena in NCWEB.
The Board expresses appreciation to the Teacher-in-charge of the Teaching Centres, for their incessant support and guidance to the students. The fact, that many of our students work for a living during the weekdays, the good academic results by them, and their participation in diverse activities at the Centres, becomes even more applaudable. I, on behalf of NCWEB convey my heartiest congratulation to all the students and the faculty.
I hope that during my term as the Director, this institution reaches greater heights and explores new paradigms. We, at NCWEB, will forever endeavour to inch closer and closer to our final objective of empowering the young girls of Delhi, with the help, support and guidance of University authorities.
