Addressing the 13th convocation of Jamia Hamdard University here, Mr Naidu said education should not be confined to getting just degrees.

The Vice President added that education is not just for employment, it must empower the individual and help in economic upliftment.

He said that educational institutions such as colleges and schools must encourage students to develop affinity towards environment protection and teach them to live with nature.

The Vice President spoke about the importance of education at length and said that it should not be confined to getting just degrees. Education is not just for employment, it must empower the individual and help in economic uplift, he added.

The Vice President appreciated the efforts of Jamia Hamdard Management and faculty for having almost 50% ennoblement of female students in its Hamdard programs and said that educating girls of all sections of society is key factor in overall development of the nation.

He said educational institutions must encourage students to develop affinity towards environment protection and teach them to live with nature.

There is nothing more important than educating women – it is the one sure shot, consistent gauge of progress for practically every development indicator, from mortality declines to economic growth, democracy and justice, he said.

The Vice President said that a tremendous opportunity for progress lies in women’s education and empowerment adding that programs like ‘Beti Bachao – Beti Padhao’, ‘Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana’ etc have been proven to be ‘game changers’ and have inspired people to campaign for the cause of the girl child.
