Skills and knowledge are the motivating forces of the financial growth and economic development of any country. India currently faces a terrible shortage of skilled workers when compared with other countries.

The accelerated economic growth further enhances the demand for skilled Human Resources. The skill ecosystem cuts across different, multiple sectors. Involvement of various stakeholders is absolutely necessary to achieve uniformity of standards across India. The list of stakeholders includes State and Central Government departments, training providers, employers, industry and knowledge partners, assessment and certification bodies, and the beneficiaries-the trainees.

As India moves progressively towards becoming a global knowledge economy, it must meet the aspirations of youth and aim towards skilling them with the best possible standards. The skill development of the working population is currently one of the top priorities for the country. There is urgent and dire need to impart quality skills to the youth of the country in order to meet global standards.

GGS Foundation as an NGO and not-for-profit company will endeavour to make an honest and meaningful contribution in enhancing skill levels of working youth.


Lifestyle management programme (lifestyle improvement programme or wellness programme) is an intervention designed to promote positive lifestyle and behaviour change and is widely used in the field of health promotion. It aims to promote life style in tune with nature through positive thought processes to achieve healthy state of mind (and body) well capable of managing emotions, stress and interpersonal relations.Human body is most precious gift of Nature and is extremely sophisticated unique machinery on earth like that of other creatures.

Some hard choices need to be made to live a peaceful & healthy life. The citizenry in prevailing civilization is prisoner of world economic systems driven towards materialism, false social norms, pleasures and pressures.The programme suits every age group.


The education systems for Children are too focused on making individuals contribute to economic system and to society. Though important, it is not enough to transform Children as ideal human beings adhering to a core value system while drawing a fine balance with societal demands. Therefore, parental role acquires crucial significance to develop the personality in its totality. Parents too are also not adequately trained (formally or informally) before acquiring Parenthood.

Hence, imperfections creep in while performing very important role of first bringing a new life in this world and then taking care of it by allocation of adequate time, resources and sacrificing.

Formal systemic teaching is completely missing for parental care and to prepare young population to imbibe value system in life and become valuable future Citizens.”Child is father of the man” is an idiom originating from the poem “My Heart Leaps Up” by William Wordsworth. It manifests that the character that young ones form as children stays with them into adult life. It means, as the Children grow, their achievements, behavior, body language and speaking manners all are reflective of the manner they were indoctrinated during early childhood.Hence, importance of parental care cannot be ignored without paying a price for it-most of the time in kind. Parental care can be understood as any non-genetic contribution by a parent that enhances the fitness of offspring in every sense of the term and it starts before conception and continues well after child birth.

Its truly admirable unique contribution of Parents but not recognized so, for a healthy human society.Children start learning (like a language)without being formally taught. Parents are the first role models of the child. Child imitates, reacts and behaves the same way as parents do. Parents to need to know how to behave in front of kids and grown up Children.Vulnerability of children without parental care is caused by lack and/or inadequate family environment.

These children are usually emotionally unstable; they frequently develop conduct disorders and have low self-esteem. Lack of parental guidance means when parents are not in the child’s life.It is easy for parents to identify physical needs: nutritious food, warm clothes etc. However, a child’s mental and emotional needs are more complex to understand and may not be obvious. Good mental health allows children to think clearly, develop socially and learn new skills. Successful parents encourage healthy behavior/attitude and inculcation of good habits.Parental care programme is an absolute necessity to promote healthy and peaceful society.

Parenthood is Divine. Let’s create Heaven for the invaluable Child.


There may be lot of argument as to whether it is possible to enhance soft skills in a training, especially when one considers the fact that a person has lived with those traits all his life. Answer is harsh but real — a person who wants to do well in his/her life and career does not really have a choice. The youth needs right attitude, appropriate Soft Skill set and quality education for meaningful, happy life and employment. Employers require the employees who can think effectively and creatively. GGS foundation essentially focusses on nurturing youth to acquire the right attitude first, professional qualification and soft skills.

Soft skills are the personal attributes/qualities that enable a person to interact effectively and harmoniously with others [people and animals]. Hard/technical skills will get an interview but soft skill will get and keep the job.A study conducted by Harvard noted that 80% of achievements in career are determined by soft skills and only 20% by hard skills. Experts feel that soft skills training should begin for a person when they are students, to perform efficiently in their academic environment as well as in their future work place.

At GGS the utmost importance is given to train the participants in soft skills as that decides the future ability, efficiency, effectiveness of the participant in personal life as well as in career growth. GGS Foundation includes it in “Life style Management” as imbibing these skills promotes the health, happiness, success and decides quality of life one leads.

My Heart Leaps up

My heart leaps up when I behold

A rainbow in the sky:

So was it when my life began;

So is it now I am a man;

So be it when I shall grow old,

Or let me die!

The Child is father of the Man;

And I could wish my days to be

Bound each to each by natural piety.

William Wordsworth 1770-1850

The famous poem of William Wordsworth inspires respect and preservation of nature for good of human race. Contemporary world order, Educational and economic system has achieved the opposite and it needs directional change to save the earth and human civilization. Good meaningful Education changes life and hence GGS Foundation seeks to re-define education. It deserves immediate attention.

The trouble with contemporary human civilizations is that it does not follow the laws of nature which in turn leads to all the present day problems. The most important component of human being, the brain is meant to be used for the good of human beings. We need to serve fellow human beings in any way we can, abhorring all sorts of man made divisions- gender/ racial/geographical/political/or religious. Imagine a world with these attributes and that is HEAVEN.

It starts from within when each one of us subjugates to the laws of nature. Education needs to emphasize start of revolutionary journey to an ‘ideal’ world by committing ourselves to the laws of nature as individuals first and then as social groups/nations. Conquering the heart or the mind is something that is going to lead to perpetual happiness which every human being seeks desperately.It needs directional change to achieve that state of mind and then that of humanity where each one treats other as a fellow citizen of Humanity.
