Ekjut, a noble initiative
We Rightways Air Logistics Pvt Ltd wholeheartedly acknowledges the purpose of building a better world. And to put this philosophy in a better sense, Rightways has situated an NGO named 'Ekjut'.
Founder and CEO of Rightways, Mr Rajendra Patil, also operates as the director of Ekjut. He has an ideology of paying back to the community. He actively supports numerous charitable causes and strongly believes in Quality Education for more sustainable development of society.
Under the umbrella of Ekjut, we run a school named "Pathfinder English Medium School". The main catchphrase of the school is 'Quality Education for All'. The children of this school mainly belong to a deprived society; to fulfil the school's motto, this education institute does not charge a single penny from the enrolled students.
Currently, this school has 90 students from class Nursery to 5th. Along with quality education, the school also provides books, stationery, and uniforms. Other than this, the school also furnishes an annual sponsorship of Rs. 3,000/- for each child.
Shri Sant Gyaneshwar Vidya Mandir, Borsar,(MP)
Founder of Rightways proudly introduces themselves as a group of volunteers serving the community in the best possible form. One of those good indeed includes adopting a village named 'Borsar' in Burhanpur, Madhya Pradesh. Borsar is about 160 km away from Indore, its main languages are Marathi and Hindi, and its occupation is farming.
We started a school called Shri Sant Gyaneshwar Vidya Mandir in Borsar, with just seven students in 2008, eventually ascending to 325 students until 2015-2016. The school now conducts classes from Junior KG till 10th Std. Considering the school's progress, the Madhya Pradesh Education Board granted consent to operate classes for 10th Standard 2015 onwards. The first batch of 19 students arose for the Board exam in 2015-2016. The relentless efforts of the school management committee and teachers have played a significant role in increasing the number of parents enrolling their children on school.
The main attractions for the parents to enrol their child in the school are caring and dedicated teaching staff and free uniforms, notebooks, textbooks, accessible computer education, etc.
Students of this school come from economically backward societies, where nearly 90% of parents are farm labourers, and the others belong to the tribal community. Presently the school is operating on donations from friends and social foundations, where Shri Subhasish Chakraborty Foundation, Bangalore, plays a significant part. No government grant in-kind or monetary is available for the school. The school also participates and promotes educational programmes, including School Chale Hum, an initiative by the Central and State governments.
