This collaboration aimed towards narrowing educational inequality in the society and catering to transformational needs of economically underprivileged children.

As part of its association with ‘Teach For India’, Intex will support exemplary education through the sponsorship of one Fellow; provide professional leadership development of ‘Teach For India’ Fellows (PD & training sessions, city conferences, etc.) and sponsor stationary kits for 500 children in ‘Teach For India’ classrooms.

At Intex, we equate education with empowerment and believe that it is the best gift that can be given to an individual, ensuring their upliftment in the society. Going forward, we hope to engage ourselves with similar such activities aimed at supporting the underprivileged and bringing a positive impact in their lives.”

Through its Fellowship program, Teach For India provides an opportunity for India’s brightest and most promising individuals to serve as full-time teachers to children from low-income communities in some of the nation’s most under-resourced schools. The aim is to provide supervision, guidance and inspiration to significantly improve their academic achievements, communication skills, self-confidence and overall personality development.

Said Ms. Dhwani Thakkar, City Development and Communications, Teach For India, on the partnership, “We are deeply grateful for the support of Intex Technologies in our mission to eliminate educational inequity in India.

We hope to continue engaging with Intex Technologies to help reach our vision that one day all children will attain an excellent education”
