Super 30 founder and mathematician Anand Kumar has been honoured in Canada for his pioneering work in the field of education.

The Legislature of British Columbia, Canada has honoured the 42-year-old for his work towards students from India’s underprivileged sections.

Anand Kumar is the found of Super 30 which successfully mentors 30 students who are mostly underprivileged for IITs. Super 30, in Patna, has been doing this absolutely free of cost for the last 14 years without any donations from government or private agencies.

In the packed hall of the British Columbia Legislative Assembly, Legislators from Maple Ridge, Mark Dalton read put the citation last night, lauding his courage and foresight, as also the initiative that has ushered in a silent revolution to empower the poor with quality education.

The Speaker Linda Reid honoured Kumar with a memento and appreciated his endeavour. A couple of years ago also, he was honoured by government of British Columbia for his educational initiative for the poor.
