Alva’s Foundation has achieved what the government should have done, BR Shetty

“Today we are in diversified sectors like pharmaceuticals, global financial service, retail,
advertising and information technology. New Medical Centre is today UAE’s largest private health care provider, with its hospitals and medical centers serving over two million patients annually across 12 facilities spread over 5 cities and 4 Emirates. Dr Mohan Alva is phenomenal in serving the society in many ways and this job fair is a highly potential platform for rural masses to pursue their dreams,” Dr B.R.Shetty said.

The two-day job fair, ‘Alva’s Pragati 2016’, organized by Alva’s Education Foundation, was inaugurated by NRI entrepreneur, CEO of Abu Dhabi-based NMC Healthcare Dr B R Shetty at V S Acharya hall, Moodbidri on Saturday July 2.

As per the organizers, nearly 10,000 aspirants have registered online for the job fair, and thousands turned up on the first day.

Addressing the gathering, Dr B R Shetty said that achievement should not be restricted to academics alone.

“Involvement in sports, cultural activities and other extra-curricular activities helps a person develop an excellent personality which in turn makes the individual an eligible candidate for any field. Education should be employment-based. In this regard, Alva’s Foundation has achieved what the government should have done. Our aim should not be earning money alone. We should have the will to use our wealth for social service as well,” he said.

“It is very important that once we are beneficiaries of this society, we give back to it. This is our responsibility, and moreover that is what counts at the end of the day.

“I have greatly benefitted from this society, it has shaped me as a responsible human being and given me a chance to serve mankind in many ways. Though I came from a poor background, my hard work and continuous effort have brought me to this stage,” he added.
