    This fundraiser will benefit

    Students of Ambal Matriculation School

    from Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Online Education is great, but only if you have the infrastructure for it. According to a recent survey, only 24% Indians own a smartphone and only 11% Indian households possess any type of computer. While we are professing online education for all and marveling at its benefits, we are grossly neglecting the section of society which do not have access to the basic infrastructure for it. We have a huge section of students who are staring at losing 1 year of basic education, just because they are not privileged enough to access the required technology.
To minimize this impact, the staff of Ambal Matriculation School in Arumbakkam, Chennai are trying to reach out to those who can help by contributing towards giving these families access to gadgets that will enable them to join online classes. Many of our children haven't been able to attend online classes, and have missed out on almost 2 months of classes (as of 30.07.2020). Any amount is encouraged, as every penny counts. No parent should experience the anguish of not being able to provide a bright future for their children due to lack of resources. Even if you cannot donate, it would mean a lot if you could help by just sharing our fundraiser link.
