Super 30, a programme to provide free educational facilities to economically backward students has produced highly successful stories. This could also be said about its founder, Anand Kumar, Indian mathematician and founder of the programme. Kumar who could not fulfill his aim to study at Cambridge University due to financial constraints, has now reached the pinnacle of inspiration to many.
He has recently been given a prestigious opportunity to speak at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University. The founder is expected to speak on his efforts of building Super 30 and work behind mentoring students from the underprivileged sections for admission to IIT.
According to a report, Kumar will speak at MIT Media Lab, an interdisciplinary research laboratory, on September 30. In addition, on October 1, he will speak at the International Education Policy programme of Harvard University.
Through this programme, global social justice is promoted in effective leadership form with innovative and sustainable education reform worldwide. The super 30 initiative has gained global praise, as a pioneering step that has inspired students from underprivileged sections to prepare themselves for the tough engineering exam.
Kumar will bring forth his idea in his speech, on how the world could be made a better place by the rightful use of education. He will further highlight his efforts of starting the programme as a small idea from the state of Bihar to the whole of country and what astonishing results it has borne.
