Indian mathematician and founder of Super 30, Anand Kumar, has been invited by the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University to speak on his globally acclaimed effort to mentor students from the underprivileged sections for admission to IIT.

Kumar, who could not study at Cambridge University years ago due to acute financial constraints, will speak at MIT Media Lab, an interdisciplinary research laboratory, on September 30, a media release said.

On October 1, he will speak at the International Education Policy programme of Harvard University.

The programme promotes global social justice through their unparallelled and effective leadership of innovative and sustainable education reform worldwide, the statement said.

Kumar's pioneering Super 30 initiative has captured the attention of global media for successfully mentoring students from underprivileged sections for Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)

"I will talk about how the world can be a better place using inclusive education as a powerful tool to usher in psychological and societal change. What I have done in the last 14 years in the backwaters of my home state Bihar is a small

initiative to provide the right opportunity to a bunch of talented and passionate students from the underprivileged sections, but the results have been astonishing," Kumar said.

"It needs to be replicated on a larger scale, as education alone has the power to tackle all the world's problems," he said.
