When we think of changing the education paradigm, we often think of a top-down approach that demands more assessments and stricter accountability measures. Perhaps the solution to revolutionizing our education system is more related to empowering our students and providing the resources to achieve their ambitions. We believe that integrating technology in education can initiate this shift in the education system.

Our names are Aishwarya Suresh, Megha Sreekanth, and Naina Mishra. We are highschool students who are grateful to have received quality education. We are passionate about transforming the education system in low economic zones. We began this journey as interns for Mantra4Change, a non-profit dedicated to education development in Bangalore. Through an intensive month of volunteering, we realized that the most pressing issue was not student aptitude, but the lack of educational resources. After reflecting on our own education journeys, we noticed the vital role technology plays in understanding and practicing concepts. We believe that the benefits of technology should extend to low-income areas as well. Hence, we are launching a project to bring twelve laptops to an aided school.  

We would really appreciate your support in helping us accomplish this goal! We would love donations through GoFundMe, resources such as books, or any ideas that you might have. Please comment below if you have any questions or suggestions.

Nice to see lot of fund pouring in $. I hope you have enough noble hearts and hands to serve the good cause and fund is spent rightfully. I am a senior citizen in JP Nagar, Bengaluru South, and wants to start initiative spreading knowledge & awareness among the children - topics on which they become informed and enabled performers as fine citizens. Start from small Govt. schools and spread to other need centers. Subject should range from Maths, Science, morality, good health of mind and body; above all contentment in life and rebuilding Bharata as told by Swamy Vivekananda. Suggestions and helping hands for networking are most welcome!! Thanks, Sudarshan sraop2009 gmail.com
