Welcome to Department of Holistic Education

The foundation of the Department of Holistic Education (DHE) is rooted in the ideology that education should extend beyond academic institutions. Vidya Bharti, the largest educational NGO globally, established a dedicated think tank Department comprising professionals from diverse fields such as academia, bureaucracy, higher and school education, society, scientists, and other experts like advocates and chartered accountants. DHE was conceptualized in 2021 by visionary ISRO scientist Dr Thakur SKR under the guidance of educationist and social reformer Shri Vijay Kumar Nadda, Organising Secretary, Vidya Bharti - North Zone as a pilot project under Vidya Bharti Punjab. Recognizing its remarkable growth and contributions to education, it was elevated to an independent organization under the auspices of Vidya Bharti Institute of Training and Research Trust.

Currently, DHE operates under the trust's umbrella. With 25 dedicated cells led by coordinators, DHE spearheads various initiatives aimed at transforming the education system. These include groundbreaking projects such as E-cycle, Punjab Super 100, Tredul, Sarvatr, Holistic Harbour, PoojaWala, TuDu, Swadeshi Bazaar, Jobs360°. DHE has also revived the glorious saga of having dedicated Kumbh/Mahakumbh for each major issue of society prevailing in ancient Bharat by creating annual large scale events in the form of Shiksha Mahakumbh and Shiksha Kumbh, attracting dignitaries and stakeholders from diverse fields. Additionally, DHE laid foundation of a quarterly journal called "Viksit India," covering a wide range of educational topics to make Bharat a self reliant hub in terms of educational and scientific publication.
