The Aditya Birla Education Trust marks the foray of the organisation into the field of education and since then it has always striven to nurture young minds. Right from establishing The Aditya Birla World Academy, an International School, to The Aditya Birla Integrated School, which acknowledges the need for a school that caters to children with special needs, the education trust, chaired by the very passionate and committed Mrs. Neerja Birla, has always prioritised the importance of a child’s development. The Trust has also established Mpower, a centre dedicated to creating awareness and ending the stigma associated with mental health. With this in mind, the next step forward has been the founding of the Aditya Birla Education Academy, which aims to provide a platform to educators who have an aspiration to enhance their own skills with the goal of wanting to further improve their classroom interactions. The Academy’s goal is to empower facilitators with tools that will raise the bar of teaching-learning process; thus, providing the education sector with highly qualified and skilled individuals.
