Story

The pandemic has significantly disrupted the education sector - which is a critical determinant of a country’s economic future.  In India, 320 million students have been affected by COVID-19 school closures, and though the government quickly recommended shifting to “online teaching,” this ignores India’s immense digital divide—with embedded gender and class divides.

To acknowledge and address this gap, the Mukharji Memorial Debate Tournament (9-11th April 2021) is collaborating with Digital Empowerment Foundation. All proceeds from the tournament will be directed to DEF's Digital Daan. This is an initiative to enable children to access smartphones, Laptops, Tablets, Desktop/Computer (Monitors & CPU), Printers, Projectors, Camera & Camera lens, through 700 centres across 25 states and 130 districts located in rural, tribal, marginalized and unreached areas.

We encourage you to donate generously and spread the word!
