Successful people opt to give back to their society in various ways. One such successful individual is Vinod Gupta who is currently the CEO of Everest Group. After being successful, Vinod sought to give back to the community that had raised him. He donated a vast sum of one million USD to the creation of the Ram Rati Gupta Polytechnic in his hometown of Rampur Maniharan.
Ram Rati Gupta Polytechnic was created solely to ensure that women can access educational resources. This school was established in the year 2000 and owing to its creation; women can have postgraduate courses within 24 months. This polytechnic offers studies in fields such as textile design, computer applications, information technology, and web design.
Other than that, Gupta also contributed to the establishment of a girl’s school in his hometown. As if that wasn’t enough, Vinod also facilitated the availability of all resources necessary to ensure quality education ranging from school buses to textbooks. The efforts that he has made have provided that women get the same resources and opportunities as men. This wasn’t the case when he was growing up. Closing the gender gap between men and women has allowed independent women in India to develop and secure their future in a competitive world.
