Mumbai Mirror published an article (Jan 19, 2020, 06:00 IST) featuring Sanjay Gupta, Global CEO of an edtech company, EnglishHelper.

Anjana Vasavani from Mumbai Mirror writes about the RightToRead program implemented by EnglishHelper. Anjana visited Shramik Vidyapith Municipal Urdu school in Dharavi, Mumbai, where Right ToRead has been implemented.  Impressed by RightToRead, she discusses the impact of the program. In her words, “RightToRead does more than build vocabulary. It helps students, who rarely converse in English in their homes or neighbourhoods, to become familiar with the language and pronounce words properly, thereby boosting their employability later.”

RightToRead is an edtech initiative for English reading and comprehension mainly for (government) school children. The program aims at enabling English literacy with the deployment of multi-sensory reading and comprehension AI software – ReadToMe®. RightToRead focuses on integrating technology and education in the classroom.RightToRead expects to benefit over 15 million students and two lakh teachers across Maharashtra.

Anjana gets into a conversation with Sanjay Gupta, the Global CEO of EnglishHelper. She shares Sanjay’s transformative journey in the field of education and the social sector. Sanjay has studied and researched the education system of India for more than a decade. His determination to bring a change in the English literacy levels of the country and his strong faith in the revolutionary ability of technology led him to partner with Boston based entrepreneur and cognitive scientist, Venkat Srinivasan, the founder of EnglishHelper.
