Dr. Vimala Rani Britto, a prominent name in the education industry, is the founder of the prestigious St. Britto’s Academy along with her husband, Xavier Britto, a Tamil film producer, and also runs a non-governmental organization, Seek Foundation, catering towards women and child empowerment. She is currently also the chairman of Kerry Indev India Pvt Ltd and is serving in multiple roles as the Chairman of VKAN-V Solutions, Director of Kerry Indev Logistics, Managing Director of Esthell Hotels & Resorts, and Director at Esthell Homes. Dr. Vimala Rani, who has made St. Britto’s Academy a world-class educational institution over the past 25 years, recently sat down for an exclusive interview with Galatta and opened up on the decision to start a pension scheme for her staff, while also talking about the efforts in social service with her Seek Foundation. 

Speaking about introducing pension for her staff at St. Britto’s Academy, Dr. Vimala Rani Britto stated, "They are dedicating their time and life to us. And, it's important on our part to do something for them in return. In any household today in this world, there will be a certain level of respect for the people if they make an earning. I don't see the staff working for me as my staff. I look at them as people who are personally related to me. And, in such a scenario, they shouldn't be dependent on anyone after they're done working at a job. This will make them happy and the happiness at that point is totally different." 

Talking about her efforts in social service, Dr. Vimala Rani Britto explains, "I have my foundation called Seek Foundation started 12 years back where we focus mainly on women empowerment and child development and have also adopted 25 villages. There will be a hub for every five villages. And, within each of those hubs, we teach tailoring and provide the learning for jobs in the small scale industries, tuition centers with computer facilities, and we appoint teachers where we also get our students involved as well. Starting from Class 3, students will also visit these villages and they will interact with the people there. It's not like a school tour or picnic and is compulsory. We have made it mandatory in our outreach program and they cannot take any leave for this because they learn a lot. We run a program called 'Believe You Can' at Seek Foundation and there will be sports, cultural, and intellectual development activities, where the students will go and conduct them with the guidance of the teachers. I also wish to see women break the glass ceiling, take a step forward, and learn more."
