Millennium Fellowship Project: The Vidya Connect
It's often 'the access' that stands as a barrier in the spread of education. So that is what we targeted. The project is erected on the ground of providing access of quality education to the underprivileged. The project began with the idea of giving access of online education to orphanages where there is a significant shortage of teachers, hence we took the responsibility of providing skilled teachers free of cost to teach students of all age groups and courses via online means, keeping in mind the
pandemic. We have also started to introduce skill based courses such as coding, moralistic training, problem solving assessment, poetry writing, art and so on. We are also focusing on broadening our base over the states by providing gadgets for online use to orphanages via fundraising.
