    Online Education

    from New Delhi, Delhi


I firmly believe that education is a basic right, which should be guaranteed to every child despite their economic background. In spite of being a constitutional right, the education of children in India is in an abhorrent state to say the least. I would like to present some statistics:
  • Less than half of India's children between the ages 6 and 14 go to school.                                                                                                  
  • A little over one-third of all children who enroll in grade 1 reach grade 8.                                                                   
  • At least 35 million children aged 6 - 14 years do not attend school.
  • 53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 9 years are illiterate.                   
  • In India, only 53% of habitation has a primary school.                           
  • In India, only 20% of habitation has a secondary school.                     
  • On an average an upper primary school is 3 km away in 22% of areas under              habitations.                                                                                       
  • In nearly 60% of schools, there are less than two teachers to teach Classes I to V.                                                                          
  • On an average, there are less than three teachers per primary school. Dropout rates increase alarmingly in class III to V, its 50% for boys, 58% for girls.         
  • 1 in 40 primary schools in India are conducted in open spaces or in tents. 
  • More than 50 percent of girls fail to enroll in school; those that do are likely to drop out by the age of 12. 
  • 50% of Indian children aged 6-18 do not go to school. 
The goal of this project Drishti, i.e., Gadgetshaala is to establish:
1. Internet facilities
2. Smart gadgets like mobile phones, laptops, and computers.
3. A mobile van to make this “ GADGETSHALA” accessible in various areas.
4. Your valuable time to teach these children.
1 Laptop costs around Rs. 25,000.
1 Tablet costs around Rs. 10,000.
1 Computer costs around Rs. 25000
1 Mobile Van costs around Rs. 5,00,000
The aim is to provide provide a full library to these students equipped with gadgets.

I am requesting that you all take action. It is every child's fundamental right to have access to basic education and knowledge of oneself and society. We hope to maintain and broaden the scope of this belief through this project. We might not be able to sponsor a student's phone or laptop on our own, but even if each of us contributes a small amount of Rs.1000 or Rs.500, Rs100. We can help these students achieve educational stability. With your support, students will be able to attend classes on a regular basis and will be prepared to take responsibility for a more educated India. By doing our part, we are not only assisting a student in obtaining an education, but we are also encouraging and contributing to our country's bright future.
