We have been associated with government schools through the Adopt IT program since 2016. Initially, we addressed the digital divide to uplift educational institutions.  When the country was battling a pandemic and the economically disadvantaged communities have been denied livelihood and access to food, we sensed the need to safeguard the health and immunity of students we operate with. In this regard, we collaborated with our NGO Partner Akshaya Patra to provide happiness kit to 1900 Students from 6 different government schools 4 in Chennai and 2 in Bangalore. We will continue to invest in innovative and impactful programs in partnership with like-minded organizations, to improve the lives of the poor and marginalized society.”
