Message from the President

“Dreams, determination and dedication are the stepping stones to success, so dare to dream and have the courage to pursue that dream relentlessly.”

Aruna M. Katara
President – Hope Foundation


“Education has to be taken to the masses; it needs to be rooted not in rote learning but in a dynamic new pedagogy that fosters innovation and the leadership mantra in each individual within the system. Flexibility and rapid
adaptation to the needs of the day have to be its hallmark if we are to fulfill our vision of a ‘Shining India’. I truly believe that the priorities for our country are Education, Research and Development and Healthcare. I am grateful that we are one of the providers of these priorities. I am forever an idealist. To me, the spirit of nation building has to be at the core of our motivation if we are to break the shackles of age-old beliefs and responses.

College education is not just about acquiring a degree or merely scoring marks. It is about learning, acquiring knowledge that will become the building blocks to a successful career ahead and help address our nation’s problems and contribute to the growth of our society and our country. Equally vital are the values and principles that will shape your personality into a holistic individual and a responsible citizen.

A vibrant, corruption-free India can only be built by a Generation that has learnt to cherish those values our country was known for. This vision is based on idealism. Our efforts are, we know, but a drop in the ocean. Yet, I also believe that every drop in the ocean counts and these efforts can come to a wonderful fruition. We fulfill our pledge towards “Make in India!” Confucius reminded us that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. We began with tiny steps, and look forward to this journey as an adventure in learning and creating. The way ahead can only get better.”
