"We live in a small and remote village. Our school is a very small school. But I was very confident that I would get good education and become successful in life with the help of my school and teachers. 

But Corona disturbed everything here, schools too were closed. I was feeling hopeless because my parents couldn't afford online education. It's too costly for us. I didn't know how would I compete with other students who have expensive e-learning resources.", says Payal an ambitious school girl from Patole Wasti, Beed.

"शाळा बंद होत्या, तरी आम्ही सगळे 'व्ही-स्कूल' वापरून अभ्यास करत होतो, यात खूपच सोप्या पद्धतीने शिकवलं आहे. माझ्या शिक्षणाचं आता काय होणार, ही माझी काळजीच 'व्ही स्कूल'मुळे दूर झाली."  पोलीस अधिकारी होण्याचं स्वप्न पाहणारी पायल आत्मविश्वासाने हे बोलत होती.


'Vowels of the People Association' identified such challenges and introduced VSchool - A free online education platform! Lakhs of students like Payal are using it for free and feeling empowered and dignified while building a better future for their families.

‘व्ही स्कूल’ काय आहे?
'व्ही स्कूल' हा ऑनलाईन शिक्षणासाठीचा मोफत प्लॅटफॉर्म आहे. येथे इयत्ता १ ली ते १० वीचा सर्व अभ्यासक्रम मराठी भाषेत उपलब्ध आहे. मागील सहा महिन्यांत 'व्ही-स्कूल'ला १० लाखांहून अधिक वापरकर्त्यांनी ८० लाखांपेक्षा जास्तवेळा भेट दिली आहे. पैसे नाहीत या कारणाने कोणीही आता ऑनलाईन शिक्षणापासून वंचित राहणार नाही आणि प्रत्येक विद्यार्थी त्याच्या उज्ज्वल भविष्यासाठी सज्ज असेल. हा प्रकल्प सुरू ठेवण्यासाठी आम्हाला मदत करा.

तुम्ही दिलेल्या देणगीएवढी रक्कम आम्हाला मोरडे फूड्स प्रा. लि. यांच्याकडूनही मदत मिळेल. उदा. तुम्ही रु.१००० ची मदत केली तर प्रत्यक्षात व्हिस्कुलसाठी रु.२००० उभे राहतील.

How girl students are affected:
Due to Covid -19 education went online and that became a hurdle for millions of non-affording parents’ children. Girl students are facing even more challenges as their education and spending on their education is usually not a priority of parents, furthermore, they are not allowed to use personal mobiles or tablets. VSchool is ensuring that every schoolchild gets good online education at no cost.
