The PAI Academy of Spoken English, founded in 2007 by noted educationalist Dr. P.A. Inamdar, is making a profound impact on the lives of underprivileged students. Driven by a deep commitment to education, Dr. Inamdar recognized the need to address the educational disparities faced by students in Pune Municipal Corporation schools, where English and computer education opportunities were limited compared to their peers.

The primary objective of the academy is to provide a life-changing opportunity for students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. By equipping them with essential English communication skills, the academy aims to empower these marginalized students and level the playing field for their growth and development.

Dr. Inamdar shared his vision for the project, stating, “Through this initiative, we aspire to instill hope and self-confidence in students belonging to the most deprived sections of society.” He emphasized the transformative power of computer education, not only boosting the students’ confidence but also inspiring their families and nurturing their dreams.

Since its establishment, the PAI Academy has successfully set up over 80 centers across Maharashtra and beyond. These centers cater to students studying in Marathi, Hindi, and Urdu mediums, ensuring that language barriers do not hinder their educational progress.

“While teaching these students, I experience immense pleasure and satisfaction. It fills me with joy to see these students, who may not have many resources, still eager to learn and succeed in life. I feel a strong sense of responsibility towards them, as I recognize that without our intervention, their circumstances may not improve. Above all, I am inspired by the hope and determination that shines on their faces. Teaching these students is truly a life-changing experience for me, ” said Sama Sayyed, the project’s leader.

Impressively, the Academy has provided training to more than 45,000 students through its Spoken English program, without any financial burden on the Pune Municipal Corporation schools administration. The academy takes pride in its selection and training of dedicated teachers who share the vision of empowering underprivileged students.

The tireless efforts of the PAI Academy in raising hope and transforming the lives of underprivileged students through education serve as a beacon of inspiration. By bridging educational gaps and offering equal opportunities, the academy is paving the way for a brighter future for these deserving students, empowering them to overcome obstacles and achieve their aspirations.
