Nita Ambani, known for her unremitting efforts towards the cause of education, has been spearheading and managing Dhirubhai Ambani International School (DAIS). As an educationist, she launched the school ten years back and is today a proud chairperson of this coveted school. Onthe 10th anniversary of the school, Nita Ambani, wife of Mukesh Ambani, the most powerful business tycoon of the country and owner of the largest private sector company, RIL,believes that it has been dream run for her and others associated with the school.
She had dreamt of creating a school thatprovides education that is at par with the international standards and is capable of changing the face of schooling in the country. She hoped to create a school where learning would be fun for students, and contenting, for teachers. According to her, it was challenging, to strike a perfect balance between infusing Indian values in the system and offering education of international standards. Within a short span of time, the schoolhas attained a feat of being ranked as one of best schools in India. The outstanding results the school has delivered, the top- notch global universities offering placements for its students and their first set of alumni being recruited by the best organizations, all stands as a testament to its success. Her focus throughout the year has been to pave the way for overall development of the student.
Busting the way a school is commonly perceived, she envisioned to create a happy school filled with happy children, teachers, staff, and parents. Committed to the cause of providing quality education, she has always considered the child‘s development as the cornerstone of the school’s activities and hence, wanted to build an institution where parents would aspire to send their children.Well begun is half done and she has been happy that they have laid a strong foundation and will now endeavor to build an eternal educational institution of excellence.
She has always been of the opinion that the country needs to focus more on educational issues like improving the teacher- child ratio. Being a teacher herself, she has been well- versed with the process of teaching and is hence, driven to the cause of enhancing the educational standards in the country.
While her twin kids- Isha and Akash graduated from the Yale University and Brown University respectively, her youngest son is a student of DAIS.
Apart from the iconic educational institution that Nita Ambanihas set- up, she hopes to launch the Sir Hurkisondas Nurrottumdas Hospital, next year.Apart fromthat, she is also occupied with the initiation of Reliance University.
