As the world becomes more and more interconnected

It is becoming even more important that humans evolve new skills of communicating, collaborating and understanding each other. We believe experimental learning is one of the most effective ways to nurture and promote these skills

It involves critical thinking, problem solving and decision making skills. It goes beyond theories to offer first-hand experience, which aids in the retention of these new concepts. Another benefit is the increased engagement of all involved. When one has first-hand involvement in solving a problem or executing an activity, they’re more likely to take ownership of the situation.

About Us

The Mehta Foundation is founded by generous donations by Pinakin A. Mehta and Nalini P. Mehta. The core strengths and values of these two individuals in the areas of problem solving, entrepreneurship, hard work, attention to detail, and an inner desire to strive and thrive are the DNA for the foundation’s mission.

Pinakin was the second to the youngest of nine children born to Ambalal H. Mehta and Vidhyagauri A. Mehta. Nalini was the second to the youngest of five children born to Chandulal G. Mehta and Ramadevi C. Mehta. In a world of arranged marriages, their union was unique and conceived from true love and shared by Pinakin and Nalini’s younger sibling’s Kamalesh and Sunita, who also married, as all four eloped in a double wedding.

Experience is the hardest kind of teacher. It gives you the test first and the lesson afterward.
