Lucknow school gets NGO status from UN

Lucknow, June 30: A city-based school chain with over 50,000 students in its various branches has been registered as an official NGO of the UN, the school.

Jagdish Gandhi, founder of the City Montessori School, told reporters that the school was registered with the department of public information of the UN as a non-governmental organisation.

This special status will give the school the privilege of "participation in various programmes, conferences and seminars organised by the UN and put forth its ideas on world unity and world peace in order to safeguard the future of 2.4 billion children of the world", he said.
