MUMBAI: On the occasion of Republic Day, Indiabulls Foundation, CSR arm of Indiabulls Group, collaborated with Robin Hood Army (RHA) in a continued effort to nurture and realise dreams of 6000 underprivileged children across the country.
Indiabulls Foundation (IBF) organized a fun-filled and interactive education drive called #AcademyWings to develop learning interest and prevent school drop-out among street children in 75 locations Pan-India. As part of this drive, IBF is distributing 6000 curriculum workbooks to these children which will allow RHA to standardize teaching sessions across all its academies in the country and help its volunteers keep track of students’ progress.
Along with this, IBF has also invited Robin Hood Academy to bring its students to Indiabulls offices in key metros where the children would get an experience to see how office work and also get inspired to complete their education. They would be interacting with Indiabulls teams and taking away memories for a lifetime.
In Mumbai, the event was hosted at the Indiabulls Finance Centre where apart from fun activities the Indiabulls management team including Ashwini Hooda, DMD, Indiabulls Housing Finance who mentored the children.
Mohammed Ali Saleem, Director of Indiabulls Foundation commented that, “Education is a fundamental right but unfortunately not every child especially from the underprivileged segment of the society can go to school. The number of school drop-out is also very high among them. But it’s important that children dream about their future and as corporate citizens it is our responsibility to help them achieve those dreams. Through Academy Wings, that is exactly what we are trying to do.”
