Visakhapatnam, Sep 17 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Governor Rameshwar Thakur today said children in 'Save Our Soul (SOS) village' , for orphans, have to be groomed as future citizens of the country.

Speaking after presenting mementos to academically distinguished children in the village near here, Mr Thakur said the goal of any education system was to inculcate in children noble qualities like patrotism, devotion to national integration, communal harmony and virtues like honesty, punctuality and discipline.

He said children should be taught the glory of India, its heritage and ancient culture.

Director of the SOS village S Nambi Varadarajan said four of the children from the village were studying to become engineers, two girls were studying to become nurses while another was studying for Bachellor's Degree in Physical Education.

He said SOS villages or 'Children's villages' set up in 1962 in the state, which were now 39 in number, have been providing care to orphaned and needy children. One more village would be added to the two functioning in Tirupati.
