Mrs. Trupti Agarwal, Director of Vishwakarma International School, believes that it is absolutely vital to make school a joyful experience for every child. It is this thought that has shaped the ethos of Vishwakarma Group’s educational ventures. The Group’s priority has always been to extend quality education to every segment of the society. For Mrs. Trupti Agarwal it is particularly satisfying that Vishwakarma Group has its presence felt at both ends of the social spectrum – for children from disadvantaged families at the Vishwakarma Vidyalaya, and children from well-educated and financially better off families at Vishwakarma International School. She believes that the Group’s decision to offer education and enriching learning environment to students to every segment of the society is not a coincidence, it is a well though out effort. It stems from a belief that every citizen must be educated. India must be an educated nation and only education can bring about true empowerment. We can only envisage to be a part of the global competitive economy with a solid foundation of an educated society to support us. She furthers her passion to enrich and empower students by extending her firm support to Vishwakarma International Schools.
