The fundraiser targets to donate 5,000 devices to all VIDYA students who are involved in all schemes in Bangalore, Mumbai, and Delhi to continue their online classes. Our students are hardworking with visions of achievement and social progress. We do not want any student left behind and ensure that they continue education. We want to ensure that our students continue to pursue their dreams unhindered with the same diligence and enthusiasm.
While online learning has opened doors to continued learning and innovation in teaching for many, students from lower socio-economic strata, like the ones associated with VIDYA, are losing out on the opportunity to learn and grow. 80% of our students are unable to attend online classes due to the lack of availability of smartphones. Sometimes, the family has only one phone used by the parents and the students have to wait till they come back home. Result? Students are not able to learn.
The donation drive will help children and students, who do not have digital resources to get learning opportunities at their homes, with their teachers or volunteers. Apart from this, it will also help in our efforts to overcome the learning deficiencies of all those students who are learning at home through various alternative online mediums. VIDYA plans to provide 5000 devices and ensure seamless education for these students. Funding from the fundraiser shall be used to obtain smartphones.
VIDYA plans to provide smartphones to 5000 students and ensure seamless education for these students. A digital device could be a valuable game-changer for children, youth and women of the less privileged communities across India and transform their future.
