The project was graced by Dr Ajay Prabhu – COO, QuEST Global and Dr Matthew Orchard – Airbus, Head of Engineering Wing.
Speaking on the occasion Dr Ajay Prabhu – COO, QuEST Global said,”QuEST Global is a 17 year old company. We want to build, a company that outlives us and builds the future for many to come. It is my belief, based on my personal life experiences that, education plays a critical role in shaping communities and their people. We have currently adopted some schools and through such sustained initiatives over a period of time, we hope to create significant impact.”
Dr Matthew Orchard added that “Airbus is happy to be back again this year in our joint initiative supporting education and improving communities in India along with QuEST Global.”
The school currently houses up to 8th standard and around 350 students with an opportunity to enrol more children from neighbouring areas.
The programme culminated with a function to recognize the children of the school and to encourage them further in education.
Notable is the fact that QuEST Global has adopted the school to contribute in multiple ways on a long term basis.
