Smile Foundation and Dr. Tarita Shankar join hands for a better tomorrow
February 4, 2013
Dr. Tarita Shankar, Chairperson of Indira Group of Institutes (IGI) and a renowned philanthropist and educationalist, recently visited Smile Foundation’s Mission Education project centre in Pune. She also extended her support to send 50 underprivileged girl child beneficiaries of Smile Foundation to school.
She spent a lot of time interacting with the kids and encouraged them to chase their dreams and convert them into a reality. The kids were excited to meet her and inspired by her, they promised to work hard to achieve their aspirations.
Speaking about her association with Smile Foundation, Dr. Tarita Shankar said, “There is no better way to thank god for whatever you are bestowed with than to give back to the society which counts on your smile. I am a firm believer that education is the only means and ends to curb all social evils from the society. By educating the girl children, the community progresses and the society become more optimistic and hopeful.”
Tarita is contributing her bit to spread a few smiles with the hope that more and more people will come forward to bring in the change they want to see in the society.
