This  School is started by a very dynamic couple and social entrepreneurs themselves Mr and Mrs Munde. They both have two talented children Pratik and Varad,  and they realized  they had to send there eldest Son Pratik to a town place to study in English medium. This created an impact on both of them and it put them in direct contact with the problems faced by parents who are forced to send children to towns and cities for better educational facilities.  To overcome this , they are running a State approved English School in a small village Panodi, which is in Tq-Sangamner, Dist Ahmednagar (40 km from Shirdi ) Maharashtra, India. There youngest son Varad is studying in same school in 4th std.
The school is a 2 storey building with lights tubes fans and ample ground with playground. They are trying best to upgrade school infrastructure everyday. School has total 167 students from 1st to 5 th std. The staff (approx 8 teachers in total)  is highly qualified and motivated to educate and teach this talented set of children.
On 15 Aug 2017, Team Thinksharp Foundation attended Independence day event Balpan English school.  We were highly convinced by there dedication and commitment for betterment of educational infrastructure and hence decided to help them more from our side.
On 02 Dec 2017, we formally launched StudyMall in this school. This StudyMall project provides them with Digital projector which is solar based and has all the needed academic contents plus non academic extracurricular contents for interactive learning. We aim to help them more in long term by providing them more learning tools as they need.

Independence day Celebrations at Balpan English School Village Panodi, Ahmednagar

On 15 Aug 2017 we celebrated our 70th Independence Day in India. We were also part of the celebrations at Balpan School, Village Panodi, Dist Ahmednagar.

We are very humbled and honored to had chance to celebrate this important day where our Founder Mr.Santosh Phad was invited to be chief Guest of Honor. I was very fortunate to join him too.

u

Balpan english school in Panodi Village is set up Mr and Mrs Munde with a sole aim of providing quality education and English language syllabus for the village students. In villages it is really a daunting task for parent to send them children to schools located at Taluqa or District place for better and English medium education. This leads to financial implications for family, health implications for children due to travelling and decreased motivation to continue education.

Balpan English school in Panodi village has 165 students currently attending from all nearby villages. It has 8 classrooms and 8 teachers. The School runs for 1st to 5th std students. It still lacks library, digital projector and other such better educational infrastructure. Thinksharp Foundation is going to set up a Digital class under project StudyMall for this school which will provide them digital projector in the initial phase and will add more educational infrastructure over period of time as per need.

On the occasion of the day various activities were performed by the talented students such as Parade walk, Lazhim, Speeches, Fancy dress as our respected Leaders and freedom fighters.
