The overall focus of the event was to promote knowledge, fitness and creativity, and equip 142 students of government schools between 6 and 17 years old to succeed professionally and personally. The event featured enjoyable and action-packed competitions and knowledge sessions like painting, dancing, career counselling, amongst others. To enhance the learning of the students Taylor and Francis India also donated a library to the organization. Over 70 employees of the organization volunteered and helped to create a memorable day for the students.
Nitasha Devasar, Managing Director, Taylor and Francis India said, “IRMET impacts learning and creates experiences for students. We are happy and proud to associate with this organization as they realize and believe that the focus of education should be learning for life and not just for livelihood. It was a great opportunity for Taylor and Francis India. We look forward to a long-lasting association with the organization.”

We are truly grateful for the library they donated to our organization.”

Ina Raja Memorial Education Trust (IRMET) came into being on 29 January 1997. Born out of a personal tragedy in June 1996, the Trust has since assumed a life of its own. IRMET has been working in an independent capacity for the last 16 years to supplement the efforts of the state education system. While the children remain enrolled in state schools, they are encouraged to spend their time outside school at the Center run by the Trust, away from the vagaries of the street.
