1. Ratna Nidhi Computer Lab Inaugration @Tasneem Urdu School, Govandi on 26th January 2018:
We were really delighted to expand our pilot of the Computer project to institutions other than our Food Partners. Holy Star English School @Malad-Malvani been one such example. This school is located in the dense slum of Malvani and has scattered classrooms with close to 1000 children studying here.
Although there are difficult situations still the spirit of the Principal Mr. Hussain Munir Sheikh, his supporting teachers and Teach For India fellows is commendable.
We gave them 5 computers on Tuesday, 6th February 2018 and look forward to our partnership with them.
