first_imgAs a part of the systematic efforts to provide education to the underprivileged kids, Cox & Kings Foundation- the philanthropic arm of Cox & Kings Ltd along with The Mamta Trust has set up a new pre-primary school for underprivileged kids in Mahadev Nagar, Manjari Road, Pune. The school is set to offer quality education, nutrition and care to the youngest and most vulnerable children in the area. The new school was recently inaugurated by Thomas C Thottathil, Vice President- Corporate Communication & CSR, Cox & Kings Ltd.Speaking about the project, Karan Anand, Head, Relationships, Cox & Kings, said, “Cox & Kings Foundation, through various CSR initiatives, has touched over 30,000 lives across India. We have been supporting Mamta Trust’s school in Hadapsar since the past few years. This new school has further expanded the scope of our work in Pune. Primarily, our focus is on providing quality education with the mix of warmth and an upbeat learning environment.”Swati Phulpagar of Mamta Trust said, “Our research on Pune’s slum kids indicates that most of the children between the ages of three and six don’t go to school as most of the parents can’t afford early education for their kids. Those who go to school, most of them are at near illiteracy level even after 2-3 years of schooling. Since the backbone of education is missing, the children are unable to clearly understand their lessons as they start their primary education. We are trying to fill in this gap through our pre-primary schools.”last_img read more
