Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

I draw from my own reservoir of experiences that the single greatest benefit of being a part of the HundrED Community is the satisfaction of associating with those who can directly influence and help me in advocating and working for the disadvantaged sections of society which is extremely rewarding. 

I will get the opportunity to meet people I never would have met otherwise - Communicating, collaborating, and interacting with others - the fastest way to expanding my horizons.

How can education support students to flourish?

Education and increasing efficiency in the Teaching quality can contribute wonders to a child's overall development. With experiential learning, students are able to learn beyond the classroom connecting with real-life situations and expand knowledge. The holistic development of a child can give rise to personality development along with increasing their ability to progress academically through multi-faceted interventions.

What role does innovation play in education change?

Innovations such as SMART Technology, Skill Development, incorporating Sports can highly increase the competency levels in academics through creative, fun and smart learning methods. Students are motivated to continue higher education and seek job opportunities in the professional environment.

Personal development through one-on-one mentoring sessions, life skills and creative intervention techniques such as participating in awareness programs outside of school can ensure that children enjoy positive relationships with their peers, community, and family, and can articulate a sense of well-being.
