The spokesperson of MBD Group said, “Facilitation of effective education to the vast population of young learners is one of the biggest challenges which our nation is facing today. Producing educated and skilled citizens is our national goal and this can be realized only when the teachers in our schools take up this responsibility on their shoulders. This can happen only when we train our teachers to enhance their skills and talent in terms of capacity, holistic knowledge, motivation and self-esteem. Large scale efforts are being put up for Capacity Building of School Teachers and Administrators’ at the government level, private institutions, corporates, international organizations and NGOs. But still there is a big gap between the huge demand and miniscule supply. At MBD Disha, we aim at taking up the initiative of comprehensive teacher training taking into fold multiple subject areas as well as various curricula followed in the schools.”
