CEO of Edulab, Mr. Pratik Gandhi is really happy about winning this bid. His wish is not just to implement this program but wants it to create a long lasting impact. He says “ There are many programs sponsored in India by USA & other governments which happen annually. However there is lack of awareness of such programs and so many of us are not even aware of such great initiatives being taken. Also these programs after implementation are forgotten. The need of the hour is continuous engagement to drive the learnings of the program to local communities & enhance the reach and message of the program. The most appealing part of this program is that we shall aid the participants set up community-based projects which they will carry out after the trip to the
US has been completed. “ This program will thus be a great platform for kids from remote India to learn a new language and meet and network with people from USA & Pakistan to enhance their global outlook. Edulab looks forward to undertake many such programs in future which emphasize on their main objective of experiential learning & cultural immersion
