MENTORS aims to make a positive change by aggressively promoting values. The starting point is for individuals to practice good values. Individual values influence the values of families and especially the values held by children. Family values shape community values and eventually the value of the nation.
It all starts with the individual. It starts with you and me!
MENTORS believe that three values are critical for success of the individual and society:
Honesty is at the top of the list. Without honesty to oneself and to others it is not possible to lead a successful and balanced life. When honesty is combined with excellence, the individual can achieve great results and succeed .When these values are combined with practice of compassion, society succeeds.
Many people live in poverty and despair. There are numerous schemes to deliver services and resources to the needy. However very little actually reaches the needy.
Large sections of Indian Society still do not have access to basic necessities like drinking water,food, shelter, education, health care, sanitation.
The root cause for this is wide spread lack of values in public life as well as private life.
Public figures are often seen as role models. However the majority of public figures do not live a life centered on values. Dishonesty, corruption, fraud and pursuit of personal wealth irrespective of the means have unfortunately become the norm.
The result is a society where people are unable to achieve their full potential.
