The event was honoured by the presence of the chief guest, the deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia and various other dignitaries.

The main objective of the conference was to share and learn from different stakeholders about the development in the education space. Along with sharing best practices, organising partner organisations such as Saajha and Indus Action held workshops in smaller groups to discuss core challenges and also solutions to tackle issues related to improving parental and community engagement, social inclusion of all stakeholders and bridging learning deficit. The highlight was the panel discussions with experts that gave an invite about the work that has been done in the Delhi government schools.
