Speaking at an event to mark the occasion, EU's ambassador to India Tomasz Kozlowski recalled that the EU was the Indian government's first development partner in education. Initially, in 1994, 155 districts were selected under the District Primary Education Program.

"As the number of children being enrolled in and completing primary school rose, we extended our support to the 'Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan' for elementary education up to Grade VIII in 2002, and the RMSA for secondary education in 2012," he said.
