"Noorbaimaa - The Visionary"

The reason for our existence
 
Noorbaimaa - The Visionary
 

Grandmother of Bilakhias

 
 
Why Maa Foundation?
 
  • Today India is progressing at a fast pace, but the benefits of the economic growth are limited to the people of the urban area
  • The benefits and effects of economic growth is not percolating to the rural areas.
  • Due to the growth in the service sectors in India there is a tremendous demand for skilled and educated workforce. This demand is continuously increasing.
  • Only if this requirement of skilled and educated workforce is met will India be able to emerge as a true economic superpower.
  • The benefits of the growth will percolate to the rural areas only if quality education reaches the most rural areas of the country.
  • The Indian education system today is facing a lot of issues like lack of infrastructure in schools, rote learning, lack of efficient and dedicated teachers, high dropout ratio, limited use of technology in teaching, high student- teacher ratio etc.
  • Looking at the gravity of these problems, efforts made by the government alone will not be sufficient. It is important that educated citizens of the country dedicate their time and money for improving the quality of education in the rural areas.
Maa Foundation is an endeavor made by the Bilakhia group in bringing to work hand in hand with the government to bring about educational reforms in the society.
