Prathidhwani, IT employees welfare organization at Technopark, has launched the ‘digital education challenge’ to support students who are struggling with their studies as the new academic year also goes online. Under this initiative, Prathidhwani plans to buy and distribute tablets to needy students from economically weaker families with the financial help of IT employees working in various companies in Technopark.
“The initiative was launched after several government schools approached us to support students from poor backgrounds to ensure that the online learning, especially of the students of the higher classes is not disrupted,” said Raneesh A.R, President of Prathidhwani. Last year, the organisation had distributed learning devices to students from 57 families. The project is being implemented by raising Rs 7500 each from IT employees and well-wishers.
