As per the UNICEF report, merely 8.5 per cent of students in India have access to the internet, and as per The Unified District Information System for Education (UIDSE+) report, at least 55.5% of schools in the country did not have computer facilities, and 66% were without internet access in the 2021-22 academic year.
The report also highlighted the digital gaps among schools. It said only 2.2% of the schools had digital libraries and that only 14.9% of them had smart classrooms. --a technological handicap that is at the cost of the children's right to education.
In 2017, Right To Live laid the foundation for the "Education for All" initiative by launching Smart Classrooms and Computer Labs at educational institutions making digital learning accessible and ensuring all students have an equal opportunity to learn.
We believe this initiative will bridge the educational and digital divide by making quality learning accessible even to the poorest among the poor. We are impacting over 25,000 students from 75 Government schools and 35 colleges in Karnataka.
We need your help! Please join our campaign and help us reach our goal of impacting 50,000 students! Every donation will help us get one step closer to our goal.
Right To Live also includes other interventions to improve the educational outcome for poor students. Some of our other programs include:
• Setting up Digital Libraries,
• 1x1 Mentoring by Corporate Employees,
• Scholarships to bright students for higher education,
• Career guidance to students in 10th and 12th grade,
and many other initiatives for the holistic development of underprivileged students.
