Tech Mahindra Foundation, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of Tech Mahindra Limited, a leading provider of solutions and services to the telecommunications industry, felicitated the winners of the Shikshak Samman Awards 2011-12 at a glittering ceremony in Delhi today. Tech Mahindra Foundation believes that good quality education is every child’s right and is critical for our country’s future. We recognize that it is the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) which bears the major responsibility of delivering primary education to hundreds of thousands of underprivileged children of our capital. In spite of several daunting challenges, many teachers in the MCD schools are working with great dedication. They deserve recognition and encouragement by the civil society, and therefore the Tech Mahindra Foundation has instituted the Shikshak Samman Awards to honour outstanding teachers working in the Municipal schools.
