Unlocking opportunities and creating access through digital learning solutions.
We work towards creating opportunities in education through digital and e-learning solutions, creating a conducive environment in schools for enhanced learning. Additionally, we are providing infrastructure support and student scholarships, as well as enabling teachers through training and capacity building.
Our D-LEAD (Digital Learning Excellence and Development) programme continued to create access to education through digital tablets with a pre-loaded curriculum. Children across Baddi (Himachal Pradesh), Sikkim, Goa, Indore and Dhar (Madhya Pradesh), Bangalore (Karnataka) and Mumbai, Patalganga and Kurkumbh (Maharashtra) have been able to continue their education during the pandemic, minimising their learning loss.
42,000+ Students benefitted
4,300+ Tablets distributed to students from low-income communities
Children who lost their family members during the COVID-19 pandemic and were at risk of dropping out of school were identified across Mumbai, Thane and Hyderabad with the help of Pratham Foundation. Educational scholarships were provided to 490+ children, especially those with disabilities and those vulnerable to trafficking or child marriage.
Quality education was ensured for 1,000+ girl students from underprivileged communities through a project called Nanhi Kali across Barabanki (Uttar Pradesh), Ratlam (Madhya Pradesh), Mumbai and Pune (Maharashtra).
The initiative aims to provide students from the seven North-eastern states with an opportunity to learn and interact with CSIR-IICT scientists, prepare them to be industry-ready or pursue a PhD in chemistry at the same time, giving them a chance to experience diverse cultures.
48 students underwent the mentorship programme at IICT, Hyderabad last year.
In Goa, under the Gyandeep training programme for the Integrated Child Development Scheme (‘ICDS’), we collaborated to support a cadre of Mukhiya Sevikas and Anganwadi workers in acquiring knowledge and learning new skills for addressing the pressing needs of differently-abled children.
1200+ Anganwadi workers and 47 Mukhiya Sevikas trained under the ICDS in Goa
