Help Poor Children Who Can't Study Due to COVID-19 Lockdown

Pandemics like COVID-19 do not hit all of us equally, the low-income communities are bearing the brunt and hence we have started an initiative ConnectBharat to ensure internet access to 5 Lakh lives. 

We will install 2500 Free Wi-Fi hotspots in slums like Kusumpur Pahari, Dalit Ekta Camp, etc, in Delhi to connect 5 Lakh lives, to support the people access to right information an enable online education for their children as the schools are shut.

Problems we’re trying to solve:
 
  • Information asymmetry during pandemic like COVID-19 when awareness about right health measures etc, becomes crucial.
  • Enable online education for thousands of students.
 
Execution plan:

  • Sponsor free internet at 2500 low-income community locations to provide free hi-speed internet to thousands of vulnerable families. We would be able to maintain their database to spread awareness about COVID-19 and take their feedback for further engagement.
  • Collaborate with the right set of non-profits to ensure the continued education of the students through a digital medium or online classes.
  • Carry out targeted outreach campaigns using our locational intelligence through SMS, Wi-Fi Landing pages, Social Media, etc, to marginalized populations about COVID-19.

Potential Impact (in the next 6 months):

  • Over the next few months, we would be enabling free internet for 1,00,000 low-income families in Delhi NCR slums thus helping them stay connected and informed.
  • Thousands of students to continue their studies using the digital medium.
