Digital education is a luxury for many
Quality education with digital technologies is still a privilege for most of the rural schools in India,
But can we change this together?
5,00,000+ INR RAISED!
As the first phase, we have been able to provide 8 computers to the school for the lab. For next phase, we are working towards:
(1) a better elearning program
(2) a self-sustainable (renewable) energy backup plan for the lab
Kanhewadi Budruk village in Central India (Pune) with 1530 residents has only one school.
166 students attend this school from classes 5-10.
Post-COVID lockdown time has amplified the pre-existing problem of increased student dropout, especially from the government schools (for kids of migrants, daily workers, and tribals).
One of the ways to keep students in school is to have better incentives, learning facilities and
curriculum that create a creative learning environment. Digital learning and access to it at an early age are quite essential today for the rural kids to be able to learn faster, have access to better learning opportunities, and be raised as global citizens while still retaining and nurturing their traditional values.
Humane Warriors is working closely with the Kanhewadi school team to develop a rural e-learning center and curriculum which will be serve as a model that can be replicated across rural India.
Provision of computers
Currently there are only five old computers for the entire school of 166 students. We will equip the school with fifteen additional computers so that more students will have access to digital tools and elearning content.
Cost ~ 300,000 INR
or 4,000 USD
Rural locations come with many challenges, one of which is unreliable energy access. To prevent this from affecting the e-learning center's operation, we aim to equip it with solar energy supply/ battery support
Cost ~ 200,000 INR
or 2,700 USD
Better E-Learning Curriculum
Currently, the e-learning program lacks a detailed training in programming, and with one of our warriors (Jyotsna Ghaitilak, IIT Bombay alumni, trained in curriculum design at Avanti), we are developing a new programming curriculum for grades 5 -10.
Skill Development Workshops
With it's multidisciplinary warrior network across the world, HW aims to inspire and provide skill development workshops to school students, so that they become changemakers within their own communities.
