Honeywell & Avasara Leadership Institute collaborate to bring world-class STEM education to young girls in Pune

Avasara Leadership Institute has announced the launch of the Honeywell Center for Advancing Girls in Science, a transformative science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) program for bright, young girls in middle and high school.

Funded by Honeywell Hometown Solutions India Foundation (HHSIF), the program will empower 500 Avasara students with an experiential, project-based science curriculum. The program seeks to inculcate critical thinking and problem-solving mindsets among girls in the age group of 11-18 years. Additionally, the center will support 12,000 students from government and low-budget schools across Pune through Young Scientist STEM camps.

Roopa Purushothaman, Founder, Avasara Leadership Institute, said, “Gender inequality in education has an outsized effect on girls’ ability to succeed or even pursue fundamental education beyond their adolescent years.”

Avasara Leadership Institute is setting the bar for girls’ education in the country through a rigorous academic curriculum combined with a strong emphasis on leadership that will empower students to lead lives of distinction and impact.

“AvasaraLeadership Institute seeks out the brightest girls, creates pathways to success, and builds a network of opportunity around them,” she added.

Ashish Gaikwad, Managing Director, Honeywell Automation India Limited and Director, HHSIF, stated, “At Honeywell, we understand the importance of STEM education and its potential to help solve some of the toughest challenges that the future will bring. India is home to some of the brightest scientific minds in the world, and our aim is to inspire and nurture these talents for a long time to come through initiatives such as this.”
