“We at WeSchool have always admired the values and passion that the Indian army is known for. Their discipline, team work, leadership and dedication are some of the traits that we try to inculcate in our students in order for them to achieve even the toughest of goals. Taking a leaf from the pages of our martyrs, I urge the youth to be inspired by these brave men and use education as a tool to become responsible citizens and add an intrinsic value to our country.

At the same time, I also urge our policy makers in the government to make use of this vast pool of talent to further develop and enhance this country and lay the foundations for a strong youth oriented generation.”

As a humble contribution to the nation’s defense forces, WeSchool has been training defense personnel for career options post their retirement from the forces. We are keen on working with the soldiers and training them to possibly initiate Startups apart from job opportunities.”
