The last week has been personally very inspiring for me. It was a week which I spent in Mumbai exploring what else but Vedic Mathematics.
First we had the TEDx talk on Vedic Mathematics organized at the Ecole Mondiale World School. It was a unique talk in terms that we used a prop to propagate the message of the simplicity of Vedic Mathematics. For those of you who were present there know what I am talking about! More on this when the actual video comes out, till then keep watching this space.
It was a pleasure meeting Shri Vinay Nair in Mumbai who is actively associated with the Chinmaya International foundation.
Currently, Akanksha reaches out to over 4000 children through two models: the after-school or center model and the school model. Akanksha has 40 centers and 13 schools in Mumbai and Pune. Through the centers, a commitment is made to support each child by providing a strong educational foundation, good time, self-esteem and values, and to help them plan how they can earn a steady livelihood as a step towards improving their standard of living. The School Project is a venture to open high-quality schools serving children from low-income communities in Mumbai and Pune. These schools are in partnership with local municipalities, with the vision of creating small clusters of model schools in these cities that can be used to impact the mainstream education system.
We are proud to announce that The Vedic Maths forum India will be training the Maths Department at Aakanksha in Vedic Mathematics. We would also like to extend this training to other NGO’s as well. So if you are reading this and know an NGO who can benefit from Vedic Mathematics please do let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
