Nawan Nankana Charitable School an educational Institution with a difference

Nawan Nankana Charitable School Sultanpur Lodhi having been established by Sant Balbir Singh Ji Seechewal on Dec 15, 2005 and inaugurated by Dr A.P.J Abdul Kalam Ji in the new building in July 2008. The school is an educational institution with a difference. The students are from slum, whose parents had come to Punjab from a backward state for bread and butter.
They were not in a position to supply books clothes and sufficient food to their children. Thus the desire to educate their children lied suppressed in their minds. Sant Seechewal motivated them to send their children to school. Thus the school was started with 36 students under the trees in the open area of Nirmal Kuteya Sultanpur Lodhi and now the strength of the students in the school is about 200. The school is being run under EK ONKAR Charitable Trust. No fees are, being charged, Books, uniforms, clothes and food is being provided free of cost. There are ten computers in the school. Ten sewing machines are also there for the girl students to make them capable of earning  their livelihood. There is also a work shop adjoining the
school to give technical education to the boy students. Upto now 650 students have got their education in the school.
    The children who in the post used to search garbage to earn some money are now sitting on the computers. Some students after getting their basic education from the school are now doing B.A and B.Tech degrees. Even some have got good jobs at their native state Bihar. Even some students after taking technical training at Sant Avtar Singh Yaadgari workshop adjoining the school, have got good jobs or are self employed. Now they are seen with respect in the society and have become capable of earning their livelihood in a respectable manner.
Studying in the pleasant and pious surroundings of the Holy Bein Banks, the children have become clean hearted. Taking part in the all type of Sewa activities at Nirmal Kuteya from time to time the children get moral and religious education as well. Children and staff also avail themselves of opportunity of serving ‘Guru Ka Langar’ which is always ready in the service of Sangats. The Gurbani is also taught in the school. These children are playing a major role in the Kar Sewa of Holy Bein and other Sewa works.
All the credit goes to Sant Seechewal Ji for the upliftment of the neglected weaker section of the society and is an example of spreading Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s humanitarian philosophy in practice. The School is being run with the help of Punjabi NRI’S and gursangats in India.

Seechewal Model A Way of Prosperity….

What exactly is Seechewal Model ?

The Punjab like other states of India and the whole world today is facing a great environmental crisis. Ground water level of Punjab is depleting rapidly. All the natural water resources are polluted due to the dumping of untreated and poisonous industrial and domestic wastage into them. As a result of this, people at large are suffering from deadly diseases. Sant Balbir Singh Singh Seechewal has devised "Seechewal model", a simple pipe and pump formula, as an effective solution to this serious problem. It has been implemented at many places including village Seechewal and Sultanpur Lodhi. In fact it has been termed as 'Seechewal Model' by the Government of India. It has been adopted as a model for cleaning the Ganga apart from other rivers of India. Before this, the Government of India dwelled on the other countries for assistance- financial as well as technical. After all such efforts had failed, the need for searching alternatives…

Challenges of Environmental Pollution and its Solutions.

The year 2019 will be a memorable year because of the forthcoming 550th Prakash Purb of Guru Nanak Dev Ji on 12th November. The gursangats are waiting eagerly for the Samagams to be celebrated during this year. 500th Prakash Purb of Guru nanak Dev Ji the founder of the Sikh religion was celebrated in Sultanpur Lodhi in 1969 and there have been lot of changes during 50 years to this Prakash Purab. During these 50 years the downfall in the environment is the biggest challenge. These 50 years, human development has played with the nature to such extent that big changes can be seen from hill peaks to to the oceans. Means due to global warming the snow laden peaks of the hills have melted and the increase in the level of the sea, many islands in the low lying areas have drowned in the sea. If such behavior continues then low lying nations will become prey to the sea. These are the big changes which are visible in the world and its affect is also visible. During these 50 years, what the Pun…

Avtar Gaushala An effort to shelter homeless and speechless animals

Mostly the stray animals become the cause of accidents on the roads. Many valuable lives have been lost due to accidents happening due to stray animals. After all it is a big question that why these milk yielding cows come in the class of stray animals. Until a cow yields milk it is kept in the house and is well served. When it stops yielding milk it is stealthily left on the road to wander. The stray cows have become a big problem but no proper alternative for it is found. To give relief to the historical city Sultanpur lodhi from the stray cows, Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal has made an effort to take care of the stray cows. Started with one stray cow in 2010 Avtar Gau Shala has now more than 150 cows, those left out by the people. Now these cows are milk yielding.The sangats are whole heartedly serving these animals with feed, straw and parali. To save these animals from cold, the sheds with modern facilities have been made. Hardeep Singh, Baba Golu, Kaka and many more sewadars are e…
