Thinksharp Foundation is growing and reaching more and more villages to help rural children by providing them better educational infrastructure. On 14 April 2018 we met another milestone, we launched 13th StudyMall at Z.P school , Rumhana, Tq Sindekhedraja, Dist.Buldhana. With this StudyMall we are reaching now 4000+ rural children and more than 100 teachers in our StudyMall schools. This Project was sponsored through our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) partnership with Endurance International Group, a renowned Technology company (More details – https://india.endurance.com/about-us/)
This project was mainly possible due to support from all our donors, funders, supporters, local teachers, parents villagers and specially because of our mentor and supporter Mr.Chate Sir who is reputed Government officer himself committed for building strong Nation. Currently he is serving as Assistant director at District Skill Development,Employment and Entrepreneurship Guidance Centre
