BANGALORE: The Richard Ivey School of Business, Canadian business school, announced on January 19 that the Ivey Executive MBA (EMBA) class of 2012 will be

donating over INR 24 lakhs to Dream School Foundation (DSF), an NGO working towards the

education and development of

children in India, that was raised through numerous fund raising events

organised, including sporting tournaments, silent auctions and raffles,

marathons, etc.

57 students from Ivey EMBA class of 2012 from Canada visited and presented a cheque of INR 24,28,000 (USD 47,220) to DSF for their programme ‘Ten Plus’, which aims to educate and empower

socio-economically deprived students from lower middle class and poor families in the High School and Junior College level. The objective is to make these students eligible for professional courses or other higher level studies (eg vocational and

technical schools) and enable them to find rewarding job

opportunities in their

field of interest.

Ariff Kachra, Strategy Professor at Ivey, said, “Through this donation, Ivey hopes to empower and educate some of these

children to excel in

their field of choice.”
