Here’s what the folks at Project Udaan have to say about this project.
“I had never thought that a woman like me who is a housewife, lives in a small village of Uttar Pradesh, and stays in the house for almost the entire day, would one day be a teacher and educate all the children living nearby and even earn a good sum of money for my family and myself. But life is all about second chances and mine was Udaan.”, says Ms. Rashmi, our entrepreneur at Khurrampur.
Stories like Rashmi ji’s are not uncommon when it comes to the strata of educated women and more often than not, their education is wasted in the daily monotonous routine inside the four walls.
Despite the education levels in India standing 69% at the secondary level, digital penetration and literacy rates are at a meager 34.8%, indicating the colossal divide between education and technology.
These labs present a unique employment opportunity for rural women to earn a dignified livelihood by transforming them to educators and changemakers of their communities. Through these labs, we provide innovative and interactive computer education to rural students at a cost as low as Rs. 4 per class. Our centres are not just a geographical space where computer education is taught and services are rendered, but is also an amplitude, a room where dreams are converted to concrete foundations of a bright future.
Udaan has the potential to change rural classrooms and communities and all this change awaits your contribution. We need your help and Support NOW.
Your support can transform the educational experience for students across rural India. We are setting up a target of 2,00,000/- which is the minimum requirement for a computer lab including expenses of the following:
- refurbishment of second hand systems Rs. 25,000
- classroom furniture Rs. 35,000
- educational material Rs. 30,000
- wiring and inverters Rs. 1,00,000
- website Rs. 6,000
- pamphlets and flexes for Rs. 4,000
