In 2005 on its 60th anniversary, the Mahindra Group had announced the setting up of two Mahindra Pride Schools (MPS) as part of its CSR initiatives. According to Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group: “Mahindra Pride School was created with an aim to nurture and unlock the potential of youth from weaker sections of our society.”

“The more I interact with the ‘Pride School’ alumni I wonder why we address them as youth from ‘weaker’ sections, their indomitable spirit in fact makes them the ‘stronger’ section of our society. Their achievements and career trajectory strongly complement this viewpoint. I couldn’t be more heartened to see the impact Mahindra Pride School has brought to these youth, living up to the promise we made years ago.” (IANS)
