Beyond Prison Bars -CSR Pearl Academy
We can proudly say that we have the heart of academicians. Pearl Academy believes in investing time and effort on its people. Prelude: The wheel is the biggest symbol of industrial revolution. Mahatma Gandhi, hailed as ‘Father of the Nation’ brought about a revolution in the freedom movement of India through his spinning wheel the Charkha. The wheel of a sewing machine is now set to bring a social and economic revolution amongst a section of India languishing in its prisons which the society knows as ‘prisoners’ and ‘criminals’. I, Bhavna Chadha and Bela Gupta from Pearl Academy saw them in a different light – these prisons as "incubators of some of India’s greatest talent and the prisoners as India’s talented workforce."
“I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy living or get busy dying” Andy Dufrense, when he enters the prison in the popular movie Shawshank Redemption
