Rural Development

All the wealth of the world cannot help one little Indian village if the people are not taught to help themselves.  Our work should be mainly educational, both moral and intellectual.   Even supposing we are in a position to open schools in each village free, still the poor boys would rather go to the plough to earn their living than come to your school. … The problem seems hopeless. I have found a way out. It is this. If the mountain does not come to Mohammed, Mohammed must go to the mountain. If the poor cannot come to education, education must reach them at the plough, in the factory, everywhere.
—Swami Vivekananda
