Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.
The word Vidyakansha translates to “a desire to learn”, which we believe is especially strong in young children. However, due the lack of opportunities in rural areas, the children do not receive quality education and the desire fails to get harnessed.
The inequality and digital divide have been more visible to us all during the pandemic. We at Vidyakansha are attempting to bridge the gap and empower the rural children with the power of education through online classes. We started small in June,2020 with just 10 volunteers and 5 children in rural Bihar by providing a tablet and data cards to the children. Currently, we have expanded to 5 states with 210+ volunteers, impacting 700+ students in the remotest parts of India.
Our journey to fulfill our vision is a long one, and for that, we need your help. The best part is, you can support us in any way comfortable for you and help create an impact in the lives of the children.
