“If we bring back a doctor or an engineer from 100 years ago in present time, he or she would not be able to even recognize the medicine or technology field of today given the tremendous progress we have made in these fields in last 100 years. However, you bring a teacher back, and he would simply pick up the chalk and start writing on the blackboard”. The statement acutely points out how little things have changed in the field of education and the dire need to change the situation to ensure quality education is made available to all with help of technology. Kulsara is one such attempt and this internship is your chance to be part of this change. The last date to apply is 15th April – Hurry!
