India has the largest adolescent population in the world, 253 million, and every fifth person is between 10 to 19 years. India stands to benefit socially, politically and economically if this large number of adolescents are safe, healthy, educated and equipped with information and life skills to support the country’s continued development.
Keeping the current situation in mind, and to help from the underprivileged sector of our country Tapas foundation as a campaign partner with Ramboll India distributed 51 Lenovo tabs to the underprivileged students of
*Govt. Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya (Raja Ram Mohan Roy), Hauz Rani, Malviya Nagar in New Delhi.*
Covid-19 has been an extremely challenging phase for the students who did not have any access to electronic gadgets to cope up with their online studies. Tapas Foundation, through this campaign, will be focusing on the academic growth of these children and will be taking their lectures on different subjects for the duration of 1 year. We shall also keep a record of their performance and will help them in excelling in the academic sphere.
According to the report of the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO), 32 million Indian children of age up to 13 years have never attended any school, the majority of them belonging to the socially disadvantaged class (2014). And, when it comes to quality education, there is an extreme shortage of qualified and dedicated teachers. Evidently, nothing extraordinary can be expected from students.
Through this campaign we aim to impact the lives of young students who do not have any access to electronic gadgets and are unable to make the right use of technology due to their economical conditions. Tapas has always believed in the motto “awareness is the first step to social reform” which is why we wish to end all the barriers that might serve as a hurdle in between the lives of these young students and their academic growth.
