Educare offers youth development programs to help children realize their full potential and succeed in life.

Why the name Educare?  According to the Oxford English Dictionary, "education" is derived from the Latin roots, 'educo' and 'educare'.  Educare means "to rear or to bring up".  Educare itself can be traced to the latin root words, "e" and "ducere".  Together, "e-ducere" means to "pull out" or "to lead forth".  We believe that the best way to educate children in any field is by using both 'educare' and 'educere' approach.  We use the term "educare" to communicate our teaching method through which children and adults are provided basic instruction and encouraged to "think" and "draw out" information from within.  Our inspiration for using the term "educare" for our programs came from a discourse of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, in which he explains the meaning of true education.  (Ref: http://www.sssbpt.info/ssspeaks/volume34/sss34-20.pdf)

The word ‘education’ is derived from the Latin root ‘educare’. While education refers to collection of worldly facts, educare is to bring out from within. Education is for a living while educare is for life. ~ Sri Sathya Sai Baba
