Dear All,

If education is not structured to discover and harness the talents of its benefactors, then, it is a robotisation centre. But have you ever envisioned a basic school in Ghana where teachers attend to students based on their individual talents and capabilities? 

 

Sir Isaac Newton once said a force of attraction between two masses is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers. This philosophically simply means that the force that makes it possible for two people to meet is proportional to the intensity of the burning desire for the attainment of a common idea in the minds of the two individuals.

How did I meet this extremely knowledgeable yet humble man transforming education in Ghana? It was when I was posted to do my national service in 2016 at Sewfi Akontombra-Yamfo as a teacher. What on earth will make a multiple award-winning Geological Engineer from the University of Mines and Technology get posted to such a remote village to teach, fate or hex?  

Deepak Chopra was right when he said all great changes are preceded by chaos. It was in the middle of my chaos, and the urge to find solace for my soul, that I met Mr. Gurdip Hari. It was one bright Sunday, and I was going through the book collections on my table. A book I had not noticed before among my collections flashed before my eyes.

I started reading the book and got addicted. Wow! This author is too knowledgeable and his solutions are very practical yet so simple and universal to find. This man talked about the use of water to flush toxins from the body and many amazing natural healing techniques. The book is 242 pages but I read everything on that day; started at 8:00 AM and finished by 3:00 PM. I noted his email address down as there was no network reception in that village to warrant internet access. After my service was over, he was the first person I contacted via email and he replied to my email with humility and love. He is the first-ever author I have ever reached out to after reading his book. But I am a highly read individual. This should tell you how his book resonated with my soul.  “Mental, Physical and Spiritual Health” by Gurdip Hari. 

Mr Gurdip Hari

 

In his book, he discussed how he wants to recreate an educational model, which focuses more on love and personal development. A system that does not give meaning to the potentials and talents of students will be obsolete in the presence of his model. The idea sounded too ideal to be realistic but hold on, what happened? 

Fast forward to 2021, after a long silence between us. He sent me a birthday wish and as a birthday present, he gave me one of his books to read to a new beginning. This book is equally amazing with great content for physical health and development. Do you know why you naturally lose appetite when sick? Do you know proper fasting is a scientific means to rid your body of toxins? Do you know cancer cells can’t stand in the face of proper fasting techniques? He shared this amazing knowledge with me for free as my birthday gift via his book “Go Back to Nature and Heal Your’self’”.

Mr. Gurdip Hari is the co-founder and the first Managing Director of Intercom Programming and Manufacturing Company (IPMC). IPMC is a leader in systems integration, software development, and IT skill-development programs in Ghana. In Ghana, mentioning top IT skills development schools without IPMC is like talking about religion in Ghana without mentioning Christianity. 

In July, Mr. Gurdip sent me a message, “… about my Dream School that’s going to change the way people look at education, the school is now up and running – Healthy Mind International School on Boundary Road, Madina. So you can come and see me any time.” This amazing soul has actually achieved his lifetime dream – create an educational environment that discovers talent and redirect the student for a fully fulfilled life.”Education for the future with the wisdom of the past.”

Healthy Mind International School is one of the most conducive environments for knowledge acquisition in Ghana. The school comes with Talent Academy, Sports Academy, Library, Swimming pool, and many ultramodern learning facilities for self-discovery. Find out more at www.healthymindschool.net.

If you consider the world as a small town, of which members are responsible for the fate of their town, you will realise, religion and race will be replaced with unlimited love for growth and development. The world simply needs more love and our problems will automatically dissolve and this is what Mr. Gurdip Hari is trying to achieve with his new educational model.
