Global Indian Foundation to set up 15 schools in India
The goal of the schools, according to Atul Temurnikar, co-founder and chairman of GIF, is quality quality education, and affordable education with global standards.
He said though in India, the standard of value education is remarkable but GIIS has its own role to play as they serve and nurture Indian students to become global players who can be placed in any part of the world with the increase in trade and culture relations in Asian economies.
"This is a part of our "flip-a-generation" program," he added.
Some of the 'Indianness' that GIF tries to inculcate in its students through their curriculum are through compulsory Sanskrit classes – so every student, no matter how his pronunciation is, recites Sanskrit shlokas – and a Mahatma Gandhi Centre for Values and Thoughts, which has a library of books on Gandhi.
