Young Gemynds Kindergarten, Primary & Secondary School, owned by Mr. Anil Melwani and Mrs. Roshni Melwani has started operating in January 1998 with four teachers and eight students .The very first school was situated along Mao-TseTung Avenue, Maputo-Mozambique.
It didn’t take a long time for the school to establish its credibility to the public. The number of students kept on increasing and so there arose a need for bigger classrooms. Therefore in June of 2001, the School was shifted to Ave. Vladimir Lenine #1915 Maputo, with more than hundred children, seven faculty members, and 3 support staff. Today we have strength of 32 full fledged enthusiastic staff, well experienced, to cater to the ever growing need of 300 children coming from different walks of life.
Being known as a reputable and quality education giving school , and through publics’ request a new branch was opened in Beira , Mozambique in March 2001. To maintain its standard, three trained teachers and five support staff were placed to monitor more than 20 children. Still a plan of appointing more teachers was in line as the number of enrollees kept on increasing. Young Gemynds School, Beira now nurtures 105 students under the assistance of 7 trained teachers and 8 support staff.
Owing to the reputation of the main branch in Maputo, Vladimir Lenine, there came a sincere request from the residents of Xai - Xai to establish a branch of Young Gemynds, Maputo. After earnest efforts, Young Gemynds, Xai-Xai was established in January 2002. Today this branch is imparting qualitative education to 40 students under the able guidance of 04 qualified teachers and 05 support staff. Later the history repeated itself, and came a request from Chimoio and Nampula residents to have young gemynds branch in their provinces too. Therefore, Young Gemynds extended their branches to Chimoio in July 2007 and Nampula in February 2009 consequently.
With the untiring efforts of the Director Mr. Anil Melwani ,Directress Mrs. Roshni Anil Melwani and Vice Principal Mr. Ravi Mahtani the school has been able to gain a firm footing in order to achieve the goals and objectives that the school strives for.
It is indeed a credit to the management, staff and well wishers, with whose help and support the school has reached remarkable heights in a short span of 11 years.
