India needs uniform educational standards across the villages as well as cities from Kashmir to Kanyakumari & Kutch to Kohima. After all, Ek Jaisaa Padhegaa India, tabhi toh Ek Saath Badhegaa India. This motive drives me towards leading Indian Education to the highest standards across the globe. India deserves to become the global education capital in the years to come with her rich ethos and moral values imbibed in our culture since centuries.

I have always believed that humanity is above all religions & boundaries. I am extremely motivated & determined to continue our endeavor of supporting the educational needs, especially to the less-privileged across the length & breadth of our country and ensure a LITERATE INDIA & SKILLED INDIA: A SAAKSHAR BHARAT.

At Global Education Trust (GET), we have undertaken various education support initiatives for thousands of underprivileged children every year. We support many NGOs and social service organizations in providing educational needs to the poor & needy.

One of our major initiatives was started from our home city Mumbai, and we currently train approximately 24,000 poor students (staying in slums of our city) free of cost each year. These students are enrolled with the schools of Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM). We really thank the MCGM for giving us an opportunity over the last few years to serve these students studying in Class VIII, Class IX & Class X across the Marathi, Urdu, Hindi, and English mediums. We are happy that we have been instrumental in improving the overall passing grades from a mere 38% a few years ago to more than 73% in SSC exams conducted by Maharashtra State Board in March 2017.

I would like to thank MT Educare Limited, Tata Motors Limited and other sponsors and supporters for their contributions towards this noble cause.

I am also glad to have support from TMC (Thane Municipal Corporation) and NMMC (Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation) schools. We have started to work with students of schools in these municipal areas as well. We hope to replicate the success which we have had with BMC schools here too.

We intend to make Mumbai slum-free in the years to come by ensuring that every poor student of Mumbai gets top-quality education free of cost (and at least passes Std. X) which will help her/him become independent and escape the clutches of poverty.

We are now all set to reach out to Marathi Medium Std. 10th SSC Maharashtra State Board students, who will be appearing for their Board Exam in March 2018, by providing them with high-quality education on their mobile-phones through a revolutionizing Educational App called Robomate+ (completely supported & sponsored by MT Educare Ltd).

After all, we as a human race can only grow further by supporting various causes of mankind. We feel that educating each & every human being on planet Earth will ensure that we become responsible global citizens and serve mankind till eternity.

Thank you.
