Regardless of whether they are poor or live far away from the city center, all children deserve to receive the same level of education.
Every child should be given equal opportunity in getting the education he or she deserves, especially those from impoverished families and underserved communities. In our effort to level the playing field between urban and rural children, we have affiliated with PINTAR Foundation in its School Adoption Program. Additionally, we also do our part to encourage innovation and creativity among undergrads as well as university faculties through initiatives and involvements in a number of activities with universities across the country.
