Reliance Foundation to set up a university: Nita Ambani
Nita Ambani, Chairperson and founder of the Reliance Foundation Nita Ambani on Saturday said that the foundation plans to set up a university for cutting-edge research and innovation as well as nurturing future leaders, musicians, scientists, and Olympians. Speaking at the India Today Conclave last evening, she said sports and education are the two pillars on which 'India Tomorrow' will rise.
With Mukesh Ambani in the audience, she delivered a talk titled 'The Great Equaliser: Sports and Education For All'. "Even the world's best and biggest companies have a finite lifespan. But educational institutions are timeless. They live, breathe and grow in the generations whom they empower," she said. And that is why, Reliance Foundation is planning to set up a world-class university, she said.
Without giving a timeline for setting up of the institution, she said it will collaborate with top universities around the world and prepare future generations to face the world with knowledge and skills. "A university from the gates of which will emerge our future leaders, our musicians, our scientists, and our Olympians," she said. "Building such a university is our dream at Reliance Foundation."
Detailing on her organization's efforts to contribute to the development of sports and education, Nita said, "In the next two decades, while the world ages, India is poised to become younger. India's youth will build India's tomorrow," she said." "Mukesh and I have a big dream and a firm commitment - to make the Right Education, and the Right to Education available to all."
