Mumbai Indians has been supporting education for under privileged students through the Education for All (EFA) initiative since 2010. Through the years we have supported 2,00,000 students by partnering with NGOs, giving an opportunity to the children to learn through Digital Vans and given them a once in a lifetime opportunity to watch their favourite stars at Wankhede Stadium.
