New Delhi: Vedanta Foundation distributed 3000 laptops to students of Vedanta PG Girls College in Ringus, Rajasthan.
This initiative has been undertaken in a bid to support less privileged students achieve their dreams. Of the 3000 girls in this college, 97 girls are from the five operational districts of Hindustan Zinc, which is sponsoring their education.
“Providing them with these laptops will help open new avenues for the students to expand their knowledge, widen their horizon and aid their learning. This will further give them an opportunity to take a step towards a more comprehensive style of education”, said Mrs. Kiran Agarwal, Chairman, Hindustan Zinc.
Mrs. Suman Didwania, Trustee, Vedanta Foundation opined, “Vedanta Foundation aims to make a positive difference to the lives of the students. With the efforts put in by these girls to learn, despite the challenges and difficulties that they face, the initiative was long due.”
Education is a primary focus at Vedanta. With an increasing thrust on Digital India by the government, its success is dependent on its accessibility and availability to the youth, who use it to add to the development of the country. This initiative will help us take a step closer to realising the dream of a digital India.
