Wardha “Pioneer of skill Education”
Gandhiji said “Only through imparting education through crafts can India stand before the world.” During his entire life he kept on reminding all the stakeholders about the importance of craft training in education. He started ‘Basic education system’ popularly known as Wardha Scheme of Education in 1937 to impart skill training in Sewagram Ashram ( Gandhi Ashram) at Wardha. The basic concept was ‘ Learn by Doing’. He believed in combination of hand culture and mind culture in education. He characterized Basic Education as “ Education for Life” . Since then Basic Education came to be Known as ‘Nai Talim’. He was the strong supporter of concept i.e. Science for Villages.
He introduced Basic Craft in spinning and weaving, carpentry, agriculture, fruit and flower cultivation, leather work, fish culture, pottery, any handicraft according to the local need, home science for girls.
