September 20, 2019
Anand Kumar the founder of the Super 30 coaching centre and a noted mathematician has been honoured in the United States with a prestigious teaching award for his contributions towards imparting education to India's needy students.
The Education Excellence Award 2019 was presented to 46-year-old Kumar by the Foundation For Excellence (FFE) at a function in San Jose, California.
Anand urged the Indian community based in the US and across the world to help education become the strongest weapon to fight all the problems of the world.
Making quality education accessible to the masses will make a huge difference to the world by solving the core issues of poverty, unemployment, population explosion, environmental degradation and a lot more. Indians have been doing wonders in different fields across the globe, including the USA, and it would be immensely satisfying for them to give something back to their society. There can be no gift more precious than education. - Anand Kumar, Founder, Super 30
Kumar has been running the super successful Super 30 programme for the last 18 years to mentor 30 students for free through year-long residential coaching for India's premiere IIT-JEE. He has seen phenomenal success with students from underprivileged sections entering the premiere institutions.
"Today, the void is getting bigger, which only education can bridge", said Kumar. "Give anyone the right opportunity and he or she will excel. It is ultimately the opportunity that matters".
Anand was recently in news for the success of a film on his life starring Hrithik Roshan. "Through my small endeavour of Super 30, I have experienced how the smile of success on the face one first generational learner brings cheers not only for the entire family, but triggers hope for the entire community. This is what the world needs and your efforts will trigger hope for millions," he said.
