Yes, we still dream withDr. APJ Abdul Kalam

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam was a great advocate for education, especially for children. He believed that education was the key to unlocking a better future and empowering young people to achieve their dreams. Here are some quotes by Dr. Kalam on education for kids:

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

"If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children."

"The purpose of education is to make good human beings with skill and expertise... Enlightened human beings can be created by teachers."

"Children are not just our future, they are our present. Education is their passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today."

"The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows."

These quotes by Dr. Kalam emphasize the importance of education in shaping the lives of children and preparing them for the future. He believed that education should go beyond just imparting knowledge and skills, but also focus on creating good human beings who can make a positive impact in the world. According to him, education is the key to unlocking a better future and creating a more peaceful and prosperous world.

Keeping these as our motivation, we wanted to educate kids with limited access to technologies on something that no one could have ever dreamt off. We at Martin Foudation,have come up with an initiative with APJ Abdul Kalam International Foundation and Space Zone India tolaunch “Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Satellite Launch Vehicle Mission 2023”, which will be designed and built by a team comprising students and space industry experts.The rocket carrying 150 research experiment cubes lifted off around 8.15 am from an open space belonging to the Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation ground at Devanari village in neighbouring Chengalpet district.
