The government schools in India, over the past years, have all but developed a good reputation. The common complaints range from inadequate facilities including access to computers and digital technology to quality of teachers present, among others. In an attempt to disrupt this trend, PFI is on a mission to provide access to quality education through digital learning across the schools in rural areas. Students from government schools in remote areas have limited exposure to the latest technologies. With the introduction of computers and other latest technologies, students are more confident about using technology and that is helping them learn better as well. PFI believes that it is also placing them on a comparable platform with urban counterparts for accessing similar education, and eventually, employment opportunities. This effort of PFI aims to bridge the digital gap in education between rural and urban India and provide equal opportunities for quality education to children from all backgrounds. With the use of interactive modules such as videos, and presentations as a medium of learning, students get to understand complicated concepts with ease. It helps in creasing their interest and curiosity level and kids do not want to miss a class too.
Although, the school understands the importance of introducing computer lessons to children, finance is the biggest hurdle in implementation of this digital interface. Therefore, PFI wishes to support this good cause by donating a computer to the school for the benefit of the students.
