To launch the first of the series, Bharti Foundation invited Vijay Kumar, Principal, Government Higher Secondary School, Dhansal, to address the gathering.

I am thankful to the program team from Bharti Foundation for their support for all our endeavours.”
The visiting top management included Vijay Chadda, CEO, Bharti Foundation, who while speaking at the inaugural session he said, “Educators in rural India carry the added responsibility of creating responsible citizenry of the future with limited resources.

We have always looked up to our teachers for their commitment, dedication and passion for education, today we have taken this one step forward by recognising their leadership quality.” Reacting to the experience shared by a school leader, National Conference MLA, Nagrota, Devender Singh Rana appreciated over the efforts of the foundation team in providing the children access to quality of education, he said.
