    Enabling the Poor - Education and Enterprise

    Education is only as good as its application and this is Pittsford University’s philosophy that it has religiously followed throughout its existence. More importantly, the application of the same philosophy has served as an instrument for indefinite success in the field for Pittsfordians.

    As a responsible institution, that has always believed in learning from experiences the Pittsford University Management has approved an innovative project for the students and businesses in the under-developed countries called the ‘Education and Enterprise Program’.

    As the name suggests, the project is precisely aimed at educating and establishing a business base in numerous African and Asian countries, especially for the poor and under-privileged people. The reason why the project specifically focuses on the under-privileged populous is because of the fact that they are as smart and enabled as any other person in the society which qualifies them for equitable opportunity to prove them-selves and make their mark on the society.
    The initiative includes a highly affordable educational program which will provide the fundamental academic infrastructure accompanied and followed by enterprise support program which shall complete the process, inculcating the culture of education and its application for high-performance.

    The ‘Education and Enterprise Program’ will be carried out on an ongoing basis to further strengthen the system with an ultimate aim to en-culture the society and develop a positive attitude towards education and its right implementation.

    This program will not only benefit the people who become a part of it but will also serve as a value adding factor for the society, country and the global economy once it is fully operational. The less educated will become qualified, lowly-employed will become businesses and small businesses will eventually grow into industry giants resulting in a global contribution, hence creating a win-win situation for everyone.
    There is no running away from the fact that this success scenario will take at least a decade to come around but now is the time to prove our sense of responsibility. If only a few other universities could take such initiatives and provide the stepping-stones, these small efforts shall certainly result in much bigger a success in the future.

    Pittsford University has always believed in being the change-agent and this shall be another step forward in the same direction. The institution works day and night to play its revolutionary role to ascertain its place among those who changed the world and to make sure that the world becomes the ideal place to live and work.
