RNS: Vedanta ESL, one of the primary steel producers in the country, signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Wednesday with AAS Vidyalaya, an Ed-Tech startup, to set up Education Cafés for students from classes 6th to 10th.
The MoU was signed at the DC office between Vikas Kakwani (Founder, AAS Vidyalaya), Ashish Gupta (CEO, ESL) and Prabla Xesh (District Education Officer, Bokaro) in the presence of Kuldeep Chaudhary (Deputy Commissioner, Bokaro) and ESL’s CSR team.
The project Vedanta-AAS Vidyalaya commences in January 2023 and intends to provide regular learning, guidance and mentoring support to the students through e-learning tools like laptops/tablets where they will have access to complete curriculum for all subjects.
The education cafés will also have sessions involving extra-curricular activities for the holistic development of all the students. The project will enroll more than 400 students overall at two government schools for this digital learning programme.
The objective of the program is to provide a cost-effective model to improve academic performance as well as digital literacy of the students who do not have access to the same. The facility will also enrol students who have dropped out from school earlier. The project aims to make sure that every Indian passes Class 10th.
The initiative is a noble step towards bringing young talent closer to academic excellence and making their dreams a reality. With all the upcoming technological enhancements, an infrastructure setup like this will be a boon for students seeking quality education.
This joint drive by Vedanta-ESL and AAS Vidyalaya shines a ray of hope in the field of education for the locals who struggle to avail quality education.
