BYJUs Education for All and Smiles Foundation join hands
BYJUS Education for All programme has partnered with Navi Mumbai-based NGO Smiles Foundation in an effort to positively influence the lives of children from underprivileged families across India with quality education and equal learning opportunities. This collaboration intends to provide BYJU’s tech-driven, high-quality individualised learning programmes to children in Maharashtra, Telangana, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Kerala, Punjab, and Haryana.
BYJU’S relationship with Smiles Foundation will seek to provide 11 lakh licences in the next three years, in keeping with its goal to empower children from marginalized communities through free learning programmes. Children in welfare homes, juvenile homes, orphanages, Maharashtra State Rural Livelihood Mission Self Help Groups, students in rural Government Zilla Parishad schools, and unaided private schools are among them. With the goal of reaching out and providing quality education to children whose parents work in the postal service, the defence forces, and police officers who served as a key support system during the epidemic, as well as those parents who serve the nation, would be affected. We have already distributed roughly 19000 licences to students as part of the cooperation.
