Thinksharp Foundation is growing, we are now helping around 5000 rural children in 30 villages of Maharashtra through 28 Studymall projects running in rural schools. We are sharing detail story about one of our Project, “20th StudyMall” launched in Z.P.School, Village Ghore Budruk,Dist-Pune on 21 Sep 2018.
In first phase we have set up Digital Class and Library, this will help around 150 Children of this village to have access to quality education.

Our special guest was Pradeep Lokhande (Founder, Rural Relation-http://ruralrelations.com/ ) who delivered his energetic speech and provided guidance to children. He shared that the most important three things to be successful are to know how to Read, Write and Speak which Studymall will help rural children’s to achieve.
Our special thanks to Ajay Munde (Ek Diwas Samajasathi Foundation) for his guidance to school children. Chief Guest Ramesh Konde (Former Zillha Parished Member,Pune) shared his thoughts on importance of education and how rural children who come from Z.P schools are more resilient as they face difficult situation and hence survive ups and downs in their career with more resilience.Teachers from other surrounding schools, Education officers, Villagers and Public Leaders from village also graced the opening ceremony.
