Over 2,00,000 students in the eastern Indian state of Odisha will be introduced to ICT- enabled quality education due to this collaborative project between Vedanta and Government of Odisha.

Over two lakh students studying in government-run schools in Odisha’s tribal-dominated districts will soon be introduced to ICT- enabled quality education with support from the Vedanta Foundation.

The new MoU signed between the Vedanta Foundation, the CSR arm of Vedanta, and the Odisha government have come together to provide hardware as well as software solutions like light−emitting diode (LED), Pico projectors with memory and battery backups, and traditional textbook−based educational software as well as e−Content based course curriculum in the local language Odia.

The foundation will also provide training to teachers on how to use the material. The support will be provided to the children under the Foundation’s E−Shiksha programme, an official said.

The agreement was signed between Ravi Krishnan, CEO of the Vedanta Foundation and Sushil Kumar Popli, Scheduled Tribe and Scheduled Caste Development, Minority and Backward Classes Welfare Department Director.
