2020 has been a year of compassion towards humanity and huge changes. For example, all the traditional shops turned into digitized eCommerce businesses due to COVID-19 lockdown, and education took a drastic change from classroom teaching to online learning.
What about those kids who are dependent on slum school for their education and do not have access to smartphones or wifi etc.
Is this the India of Digital Equality?
These were the questions that constantly haunted us and forced us to come up with a solution. We started providing online classes to a few slum students through smartphones donated to them, realizing the fact that their family won’t spend money on education, as this pandemic has brought the crises for food and other essential needs in sharp focus. For their family, the need is “ROTI KAPDA MAKAN” not educating their kids.
This fundraiser is for all the slum students who cannot afford to go back to the school even if this pandemic ends. The parents who have lost their jobs will first focus first on finding jobs and surviving. Education will be the last priority and a casualty. Even the slums schools are struggling to survive as the parents can't even pay the meagre fees that they used to charge.
We have initiated this mission with the goal of providing them with smartphones and internet packs. We are constantly working with our team to provide them, online classes, through smartphones and free internet packs and we don’t want to stop here because of low funds.
All the funds that we would generate would solely go for the benefits of these slum students in the way of providing them with smartphones and daily internet packs with our classes.
We all surf the internet for things like tips on cooking food to playing games. Let’s help someone to educate herself or himself to get through the odds of her/his life.
