Happy Teachers Day!

Happy Teachers Day
 
"A teacher affects eternity: he can never tell where his influence stops."
- Henry B. Adams 
 
 




 
13 projects
28 schools
2000+ students
 

Ever looked at an old class photo taken with a favorite teacher and wondered where you would be without him/her? Ever wondered how important guidance has been in shaping our future? These men and women have dediated their life to learning, paving the way and molding our existence. Our TEACHERS! They have transformed our lives through education and taught us the basics on which our success rests. Former president of India, Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam once said - 'A student spends 25,000 hours in the campus. The schools must have the best of teachers who have the ability to teach, love teaching and build moral qualities.'

On September 5, as we celebrate Teachers Day and reflect on those who have influenced our lives, let us create the same experience that we cherished long, for the less fortunate.
