Vapi (Gujarat) [India], June 29 (ANI/BusinessWire India): Education is a crucible in which progress, prosperity and enlightenment are important. In a country of such vast proportions and population as India, a robust educational system has always been the need of the hour to solve the most major social and economic challenges. Yet, infrastructural, personnel and societal roadblocks mean holistic education remains a pipe dream across the grassroots.
Maa Foundation by the Bilakhia Group is among numerous notable NGOs doing their bit to induce large-scale quality reform in the education imparted in schools, especially in rural and disadvantaged areas of India. This commitment toward positive educational change comes from decades of knowledge regarding the hurdles and issues that plague the education system.
Driven by purpose
Following in the nation-building footsteps of its parent organization - the Bilakhia Group and Bilakhia Holdings - Maa Foundation envisions an India where every child is holistically educated and empowered with a vision for their lives. Moreover, the NGO works with teachers and parents to equip them for a brighter future for children. Set to this very purpose, the NGO works on four central pillars: humanity, imagination, creativity and growth.
It sowed the seeds of these pillars and Maa Foundation itself as early as 1907 - an era when Noor Bai Maa inculcated the importance of education amongst her grandchildren - the Bilakhia siblings. Today, Maa Foundation operates with the same gusto and inspiration, looking to modernize children's education and empower teachers and schools for successful learning outcomes.
This is made possible by Maa Foundation's focus on building scalable, process-driven, sustainable, and result-oriented educational models for easy adoption. Additionally, the educational NGO has fostered partnerships with the governments, corporates and high-net-worth individuals to replicate and implement their initiatives on the ground with excellent efficiency. All in all, Maa Foundation's role in facilitating productive educational reforms have produced the following impact:
- 3000+ teachers trained
- 10,000+ student scholarships awarded
- 85,000+ students provided career guidance
- 82,608 students were provided with primary computer education
- 55,000+ students given basic Math, English and Science education
- 800+ youths equipped with skill training
An ever-growing portfolio of progressive projects
Maa Foundation has the primary aim to implement and standardize activity-based learning across schools. To achieve the same, the NGO has created a comprehensive portfolio of initiatives and projects, including implementing new learning methods across rural schools, providing career counselling, focusing on skill development for youth, training teachers for modern learning methodologies, and organizing parenting workshops. The total of all the initiatives by Maa Foundation helps move the needle on bridging the quality education accessibility gap and the employability gap in India.
Thereby reiterating, Maa Foundation's commitment in unleashing the limitless potential of India's younger generations and equipping them with 21st-century skills. Achieving so with world-class, standardized and innovative education models will set future societal progress.
