One child. One teacher. One pen. One book – can change the world.
Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to make a difference.
An Education Activist, Mr. Sagar Papneja, completed his graduation from Symbiosis University. He then moved back to Surat and started working in the education sector. Student activism has always been his subject of interest.
Sagar also started working with an NGO named Pathshala and eventually became its co-head. Pathshala strives to provide quality education to the underprivileged students. They also provide a scholarship to around 30-40 students every year. Sagar also worked with the National Youth Conclave. His list of achievements is endless and inspiring.
In the year 2016, Sagar came up with the startup called TWAD – Teach With a Difference. TWAD provides activity-based learning and short-term professional courses to people.
Moreover, he also introduced a new startup to popularise the ongoing trend of standup comedy called Clean Bald.
For Sagar, education is not just limited to text books. For him, education is anything that makes a person versatile. Sagar has completely changed the definition of education and believes that art forms like music, dance, etc. are exciting ways to approach possibilities that are not possible with just textbooks.
We, at THE RISING BHARAT, acknowledge the commitments he has shown towards the society.
Rare people like him carry the lamp of knowledge to diminish the darkness of ignorance.
