ECHO 2017 has 270 municipal school students and 120 private college students, across the city of Mumbai, coming together for the most transformative experience of their lives through numerous holistic personality development activities. Esteemed speakers participate to explain various concepts to children including college registration process, health and hygiene, technology today, gender sensitisation, financial literacy, etc. Echo has been successful in empowering an increasing number of students to complete their much-needed college graduation degrees. By changing one life at a time, ECHO aims to create and revolutionize a monumental and sustainable change in India.
ECHO is spearheaded by Freyaz Shroff, Founder of KurNiv, and member of the Rotary Club of Bombay, who firmly believes that every child has the right to education. However, in keeping with the low rate of secondary education in India and seeing many children deprived of this basic right, Freyaz started ECHO in 2015, to ensure quality holistic development to all Indian children. ECHO is an initiative by the Rotary Club of Bombay and Rotaract Club of HR College in partnership with Rotary District 3141 and the Rotaract District 3141. Freyaz Shroff leads the program and various esteemed industrialists, educationists and prominent community members support Echo with their active participation and monetary assistance. Both organizations strive to bring a change in the lives of the underprivileged kids and impact their learning processes.
