I want to be able to build a power corridor between rural and urban education and bridge the gap in between. It has been my dream to bring international education to even the smallest places in India at very affordable prices, so the families with talented and gifted kids can see their kids reaching great heights. I aim to bring international education to the non-Ivy future of India. I wanted the project to adopt existing schools and turn them into education centers that excel at international standards, facilities with future-oriented curriculum, skill based learning and means, methods and opportunities towards organic life skills especially aligned with the vision of National Education Policy. Initially, I have adopted the school at Alandi and am developing it as a model for similar future projects that will have potential to change the schooling and education scenario in India.” She explained her vision and the glint in her eye showcased her passion for it. “It is an eventual process and I plan to build the school in Alandi so more and more investors can come aboard with the dream.”
