India House hosts students, teachers

Three students and two teachers from Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV) school in rural Maharashtra, who are here to participate in a programme at Pembroke and Somerville Colleges, University of Oxford, were hosted at the Indian High Commission. The students were here as part of The Karta Initiative — a non-profit initiative that works in collaboration with the Tata Trusts to connect brilliant low-income Indian students with world class higher education. Founded by Ranjita Rajan, the initiative was launched this year as a pilot. Indian High Commissioner Navtej Sarna welcomed the initiative and interacted with students.IANS
