GlobalLogic a leading experience design and digital product development company, today adopted ANK’s Ghaziabad learning centre with the objective of providing quality education to underprivileged children.As part of its association with ANK, Globallogic will support the newly launched Ghaziabad (Khoda) centre fully, right from administrative to schooling needs. GlobalLogic has taken full ownership of setting up and running the school for the next three years. Under the bigger umbrella of providing education to the underprivileged, GlobalLogic also has a team of volunteers and representatives who are dedicating time and efforts towards mentoring and further ensuring development of these students.

With the launch of the GlobalLogic ANK centre at Ghaziabad, GlobalLogic along with its other existing NGO associations and child education efforts, will be able to positively impact the lives of more than 150 children further. Located in an area marked by poverty and squalid living conditions, which is in sharp contrast to the high-rises in the satellite city, the centre trains children coming from households who earn their living working as agriculture and daily-wage labourers, house helps, masons and small shopkeepers. The school will have an English and a computer classroom, besides two general classrooms. The idea behind this initiative is to introduce children between the ages of 6 and 12 years to a world of growth and development through basic and remedial education with basic English, computers and vocational training.

Inaugurating ANK’s centre in Ghaziabad, Mr. SumitSood, GlobalLogic India, Managing Director, said,“Through this initiative with ANK, our sincere attempt is to provide the means to better education to children living in an area where quality education is difficult to come by. Our mission for this year was child education and I am happy to see we will touch over 900 students in just the past 6 months. The ANKcentre will have 150 students, who will be divided in two age groups of 6-14 years and 14-17 years. Our aim is to provide these children with the best of education and make them an integral part of India’s growth. Nothing will make us prouder than to see these students being educated and become well-respected individuals in the society.

Mr. Abhishek Kishor, CEO & Secretary -ANK said,“ANK’s philosophy centres around quality education being the only vehicle that can improve the living standards of underprivileged children.Education is the only weapon to fight poverty and truly empower the children who will tomorrow be the face of India. With GlobalLogic’s proactive association, we aim to achieve a better tomorrow through the medium of education and make the power of knowledge accessible to millions.”
