Shaping A Fairer World’ is the platform to join the dots of the Education world. No education is ever achieved unless we connect Educators, Students and Parents together. It's an attempt to share the voices and unheard stories across the globe. I believe that “Nothing can stand in the way of the power of voices calling for CHANGE”
