CSR (CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY) FOR EDUCATION

MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO IMPACT WHERE IT MATTERS

Various reports have indicated that less than 10% of the revenues allocated for the underprivileged reach the beneficiaries. The administrative and aligned costs eat up unimaginable chunk of our taxes. CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is the best way to deploy the funds where they matter. The reputed Indian Corporates have been following the CSR practices decades before it became mandatory. The Tata Companies, for example, made community service as its inherent part of business more than a century ago. The Corporate sector has long realised that the best way to contribute to the society is to educate and sensitize the future generation. The current environment and the measures taken are not sufficient and effective to mould the little angels in remote village schools. That’s where technology intervention becomes the best tool for progressive CSR teams and rural education can make an impact in people’s minds.

CURRENT SCENARIO
(AS PER SURVEYS BY REPUTED NGOs)

  • 59% of class V students cannot read class II text book (up from 43% in year 2010).
  • 47% of class V students cannot do simple two digit subtraction (up from 29% in year 2010).
  • 74% of class V students cannot do simple division (up from 64% in year 2010).
  • 57% of Indian schools have 3 teachers or less.
  • Quality and Quantity is an issue.
  • Students are poor in basic reading and maths skills.
  • Low motivation–Low Confidence.

We can make a difference by:

  • Empowering village youth through education.
  • Providing technology driven quality education at affordable costs to masses.

EIT, THE BEST SOLUTION FOR EDUCATION UNDER CSR

EIT has been actively engaged with CSR teams across sectors since more than 5 years. Owing to our experience working with dozens of reputed organizations we understand the specific needs to Corporate sector (Sponsors) as well as beneficiaries (Schools-Teachers-Students). eLearning in Marathi medium has been welcomed by most corporates since rural education thrives in vernacular languages.

The CSR Sales team can, on occasions, advise it’s clients on best practices followed, the documentation and reporting mechanism, filing the reports for audit, impact assessment, public image initiatives and so on. We ensure due visibility of our generous sponsors within the community in discussion with the CSR teams.

The Development team continuously interacts with thousands of teachers and students to understand the needs specific to the class it caters to and develops its products in line with requirements and emerging needs. The development also takes care of computer literacy levels of these schools and the products are designed accordingly.

The Service team needs the geography of these locations by heart and provides on-site support and upgrades promptly. Considering the nature of this project, support at remote locations and knowledge of territories is more crucial than the software and equipment. That’s why our projects are sustainable-measurable-visible.
