MUMBAI, Mar 21 (The CONNECT) -EdTech firm ConnectEd Technologies today announced a CSR initiative in association with Forever Living Products India (FLPI) to provide free online access to curriculum-linked educational content across government schools of Maharashtra and Goa.
The programme, CSR-funded by FLPI, and executed by ConnectEd Technologies with support from Seva Sahayog Foundation aims to provide quality vernacular educational content to government school students, in a bid to improve learning outcomes, especially during the on-going Covid-19 pandemic.
More than 10,000+ government school students from Grade 5 to 10 across Maharashtra and Goa will be provided with free online access to a web and mobile app platform. Initially, the initiative aims to benefit students from government schools located in Raigad district of Maharashtra, and North Goa district of Goa. Subsequently, the initiative will be scaled up to cover students from other regions as well.
Dr. Kiran Patil, CEO - Raigad Zilla Parishad, said, “The Covid-19 pandemic and resultant school closures emphasised the need for a parallel, digital framework through which quality education could be served to govt. school students.” He expressed the hope that many more organisations will come forward to support this initiative and ensure that it benefits every student in Raigad as well as Maharashtra.
Lehar Tawde, Co-founder, ConnectEd Technologies, said, ConnectEd Technologies will coordinate with government schools to sensitise parents and students about the platform, where they can access curriculum-linked educational content for free, using any device and connectivity at their disposal. The EdTech company will provide school teachers with valuable statistics pertaining to content consumption by each student, thereby enabling them push parents and students to meet learning targets that have been set by the school. Currently, ConnectEd Technologies has deployed such programs across 8 states in India.
