“Be the change that you wish to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi

If Mahatma Gandhi along with other dynamic freedom fighters would have thought that change is impossible, then we probably wouldn’t have a democratic country today. What empowered freedom fighters to rise to the occasion was the strong backing of education. For instance, take a look at Mahatma Gandhi’s educational background. He studied law at the Inner Temple, London which helped him eradicate the caste system which plagued India since years.

Education enlightens our mind and makes us the torch bearers of spreading the light of knowledge. Are you among the ones who want to be a part of the social space? Here are institutes which will nudge you further towards social change.
