Help rural children access digital education at home!

Accessible digital education for underprivileged students 

 Providing tablets for rural students


The pandemic has changed all of our lives. All activities we took for granted have either come to a halt or have been shifted to online platforms. For those of us in schools, online cases have become the new norm.
When we think of schools in rural areas, the first thing that comes to our minds is shabby classrooms, absent teachers, and poor quality of education. For them, the concept of homeschooling and online education is as alien as schools with proper infrastructure. This is why this summer I decided to be a changemaker and chose to help these children gain access to online educational facilities.

For many children in rural India, digital education is still a faraway dream. Even as lockdowns ease schools will be the last to reopen. During such a time, as schools shift to online platforms, education for many students has come to a standstill. They are not able to afford the equipment needed for online classes, and with many families facing various problems due to this crisis, education is not on the top of their priorities. Of 100 students initially enrolled, on average, only 70 finish their schooling. Now, because of this digital divide in rural India, the dropout rate is expected to increase drastically.

We are aiming to bring tablets to 75 students in rural Maharashtra to help quell this divide. These tablets will allow them to attend online classes, interact with teachers, attend webinars, and also gain access to educational material. Thinksharp foundation has been working with schools in rural areas to improve educational infrastructures like digital learning tools library, games, computer education, financial support, and creating a progressive and positive learning environment by working with the village community, teachers, government, and other stakeholders.

By contributing to this, you can help a child whose future looks rather bleak at this point in time. A single tablet can open the world of online educational resources that these children otherwise are unable to access.
