Adopt-a-Village

Transforming rural areas through digital learning is the focus of Adopt-a-village program. This program will provide academic and vocational training to prepare rural students for higher education and careers. All the schools in the villages will get smart class and these audio visual labs will become community learning centers during after school hours.

Therefore, the first step in transforming villages across India is by imparting quality education thru smart classroom and smart schools to the masses in a cost effective way. Digital education will transform villages into model villages that can learn to easily adopt and adapt digital infrastructure, health care, cleanliness, social justice, women empowerment, community services, etc. in the process make their villages into Smart Villages.

This program has proven to have a tremendous impact:

  • Every school in the village will become smart classrooms with digital learning content and digital libraries
  • All the schools in the village can become community centers during after school hours
  • These community centers in villages will allow young children to hone their IT skills and learn vocational software that can will equip them with employable skills.
  • Digital education gives the greatest social ROI than any other Government or private sector project
  • These community centers will become the training grounds for all villagers to pick-up IT skills and in the process reduce digital divide and inequalities.
