SMART-1000

A School Transformation Initiative

About SMART-1000

Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has envisioned, "I dream of a digital India where quality education reaches the most inaccessible corners driven by digital learning.”

Education is a right every child deserves, embodying our ethos. Recognizing the synergy between digitization and education, we're launching SMART-1000, a School Transformation Initiative to modernize 1000+ government schools nationwide in partnership with Yuva Unstoppable.

In a world increasingly driven by technology, an alarming 95.6% of government schools in India are without functional smart classrooms. Data from the Unified District Information System for Education (UDISE 2020-21) shows that only 24.4% of these schools have internet facilities, and a scant 37.7% possess computers. Such figures underscore the urgent need for projects like ours. Moreover, the infrastructure gap widens with around 42% of schools lacking basic furniture, 15% without working electricity, and another 15% bereft of essential water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) facilities. This situation highlights a critical demand for substantial infrastructural improvements to bridge the educational divide.

With 300 classrooms committed, we're 700 classrooms away from our goal. Your support is crucial to foster a well-educated, self-sustained, and ATMANIRBHAR India.

Working closely with government schools lacking infrastructure, we aim not just to upgrade classrooms but to transform the educational landscape. As the saying goes, 'it takes a village to raise a child.' We believe in reshaping their educational journey through innovation and dedication.

Partnering with us extends beyond digital classrooms to providing essential facilities like clean water, sanitation, and hygiene. Your support aims not only to offer an interactive learning experience but to sow the seeds of a hopeful and holistic future for generations to come.
