Education and Health are the two main areas where we can intervene and empower others, especially our children. I request DLF to intervene beyond infrastructural development and support also on developing soft skills of the students. Proper monitoring is essential. I am very happy to see the new fun based teaching learning that DLF Foundation has introduced in these schools. ” said Shri. N. P. Singh, District Magistrate, Gautam Buddh Nagar

Through our Integrated School Development Programme we are trying to create the same”, said Mr. Ritesh Sinha, Director-CSR, DLF Ltd.
