“The true teachers are those who help us think for ourselves.”

Why S R Dalvi Foundation?

Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, one of India’s most revered teacher whose contribution to the Indian education system is unparalleled, believed that all teachers should be the best minds in the country.

The SRD (I) Foundation, a not-for-profit trust, established by Smt. Sita Ramachandra Dalvi and her husband is an gratitude to all teachers who play an important part in our formative years and even later.

After our family, teacher is the first person we get introduced to, whom our parents trust. After parents, it is teacher who holds our hand and takes efforts of planting the seed of knowledge in our mind. While parents help us to take our first steps, teachers guide us through twists and turns of coming years in our lives.

We truly believe that teaching is one of the noblest of all the professions. All teachers deserve same respect as any other professionals like doctors and CAs. After all, doctors and CAs are developed in schools and colleges, where their knowledge and education comes from the teachers.

We are living in era of knowledge economy where knowledge is power.

गुरु के बिना ज्ञान नहीं और ज्ञान के बिना जीवन है बेकार

Without teacher, there will be no knowledge and without knowledge there wont be life.

SR Dalvi (I) Foundation is setup with this underlying principle. We aim to bring much-deserved respect to teachers by elevating their social status and respectability at par with other respectful professions. The SRD (I) Foundation has taken upon its shoulders to ensure that teaching profession is looked up honourably and encourage knowledgeable people to take up this profession as first choice.

We strongly believe, education is the best and sustainable route to change India. And Teachers are the best change-angels who can influence, motivate and encourage the future generation.

Through our various initiatives, we plan to build a community of passionate teachers, equipping them with necessary tools and means that will enable them to cultivate a generation of highly motivated knowledge seekers and talented students.
