Tabassum Shaikh, feels that an investment in knowledge pays the best interest. She sees students with great technical skills, but lacking in communication skills, leading to many of them being unnoticed. This is her trigger point which motivates her to bring a change in the education sector. She anchored 'Challenge to Teach' program as a 'City Champion' for Mumbai. The main objective of the program was to increase the learning level in basic arithmetic and English reading of students in Class 4,5,6 & 7.
She was also anchoring 'Summer Carnival' program as a 'City Champion' for Mumbai that consisted of exciting activities like School Wall Painting, Super Teacher, Hand Right & Re-Wise, which created an impact students, the schools, society and in Tabassum herself.
