While working in the Chandar Village, I
suddenly got a call from a person from France. There was a general
introduction. It was the first call I received from abroad. That was the call
of Mr. Santosh Phad, the founder of Thinksharp Foundation. This organization
and Santosh Sir work to provide better educational facilities to schools in
We had done some planning for Chandar Village School at that time but then I was transferred
from that school and at that time those planning stopped.
A few days after joining the new school at
village Gorhe Bu., I texted Santosh Sir, if anything could be done for my new
school. After a while, reply came that we should definitely plan. And since
then, change has begun in our school.
We started ‘StudyMall’, an initiative of
Thinksharp Foundation and Santosh Sir in our school in September 2018. Since
then, the school has started to change. The StudyMall project guided us to
digitalize our school.
Hanging Library established in the
school has been found useful in creating a love of reading for the students, It’s
under the StudyMall project.
The Thinksharp Foundation is working as a
bridge between the educational process in urban and rural areas. The Thinksharp
Foundation is providing various facilities to needy rural schools across
Maharashtra. As a result, both the quality of schools and the development of
students are on the way to progress. Santosh Sir himself comes from a family in
a rural area. After completing his higher education and working abroad, he has
now settled in India.
Santosh Sir, who feels that we owe
something to the community we came from. Good luck for your further work, your
guidance will always be with us.
