“The MoneyGram Foundation believes that education is at the heart of better economic opportunities, healthier families, and individual freedom and empowerment. India possesses great young talent and we wish to nurture this talent right at the beginning,” says Grant Lines, Executive Vice President of Asia Pacific, South Asia and the Middle East at MoneyGram. “The MoneyGram Foundation supports high-impact education programs around the world. We are excited to work with Agastya International Foundation to provide this innovative learning opportunity for thousands of children in the important subject of science.”

Agastya International Foundation’s mission of “a creative India” is achieved by sparking creativity among millions of disadvantaged children and their teachers. The Mobile Science Labs aid in making learning fun and awakening intellectual curiosity. Each lab funded by the MoneyGram Foundation will travel to 30 schools in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Bihar, teaching children using hands-on science models in physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics.

"We are delighted about the path-breaking collaboration with MoneyGram to launch three Mobile Science Labs for underprivileged children in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Maharashtra,” said Ramji Raghavan, Chairman, Agastya International Foundation. "With the MoneyGram Foundation’s support, over 20,000 children every year will experience the joy of hands-on, experiential learning which we believe will spark their curiosity and help to nurture their creativity like never experienced before."
