Sumeet Mehta, CEO and Co-Founder, LEAD, said, “For a child to learn and excel in various subjects, they must first achieve grade level proficiency in English, beginning at the pre-primary school level. We are delighted to join hands with the Government of Rajasthan to empower students in the state with the essential skills needed to excel in English language proficiency. Through our skills-based English Language Program, we will ensure every student has access to a world of learning opportunities and an equal chance of success in life.”
Shri Naveen Jain IAS, Department of School Education, Govt. of Rajasthan, said, “Children, particularly in rural areas, studying in Mahatma Gandhi Government Schools (MGGS) were facing difficulties in handling the changeover from Hindi medium to English medium. But, with these facilitating classes of the English Language Program by LEAD, they will be prepared to take up the challenge. I am sure the material provided by LEAD shall make their learning process easier and better.”
