NAR-India pitches in for child education in Ladakh
National Association of Realtors, India (NAR-India) has launched an initiative to raise awareness about child education in high altitudes that brought like-minded philanthropists under one umbrella
A nation can be progressive only with education being a top priority. Keeping in view the same, many NGOs are stepping forward to nurture kids deprived of education due to socio-economic and socio-political backgrounds, which is a serious handicap.
Such an initiative was launched by National Association of Realtors, India (NAR-India) with a view to fostering awareness about child education in high altitudes that brought like-minded philanthropists under one umbrella with one single vision.
The conference held at Delhi addressed a number of challenges pertaining to severe weather conditions while working in altitudes and lack of opportunities the real estate industry is having to struggle on a daily basis. The event talked about raising funds to help the 17000ft Foundation that is transforming school education in India’s youngest union territory– Ladakh.
"The real estate sector has undergone several paradigm-shifting changes during the pandemic and this year’s convention threw light on those changes. By getting people from different sectors of the real estate industry on a common platform, we will be able to spark strategic discussions aimed at resolving the issues with the sector – both old and new. This event is going to act as a fundraiser for the 17000ft Foundation,” Tarun Bhatia, President-Elect, NAR-India said.
In the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year, the event is being organized on both the offline and online platforms (hybrid mode) to extend networking opportunities within the country and maintain proper social distancing protocol.
“Education is the backbone of progress, and so far, Ladakh has been deprived of it, partly because of its geographical location and partly for socio-political reasons. The work that is being done is laudable, and we will aid them to the fullest of our capacity. We have seen MBA guys from IIMs joining this industry. ” Kshitij Nagpal, President, APP Delhi-NCR said.
