Aahwahan Initiates ‘Laptop Bank’ A Learning Opportunity For The Underprivileged

Aahwahan Foundation combines its experience, technical capabilities, and leadership skills to develop programs, campaigns, & initiatives where they are required the most.

Aahwahan Foundation's 'Laptop Bank' initiative empowers education and ensures to expand its opportunities to the toughest regions of the nation. They enable weaker section students (6th-12th standard) to borrow laptops and study from home for a specific duration (usually 2-3hours). The students will have to go through a verification process; wherein their volunteer will check the household income details and only students who are eligible for the initiative will be shortlisted. The laptops will be installed with the relevant software before they are provided to students who qualify to receive the support.

Braja Kishore Pradhan, founder, Aahwahan Foundation suggests “every citizen must come forward & contribute to the students for a viable future of the country and social positive change. He urges the contribution of community groups and corporates through their CSR programs as the need of the hour to enable education for the marginalized groups of the society”. 

Currently, Aahwahan Foundation has 433 laptops allocated to this effort, benefiting up to 3031 students from metro cities including Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, and Noida. The team has set a goal of allocating 1000 computers for this specific initiative, which will benefit 10,000 kids from various parts of the country. Furthermore, the foundation intends to expand its initiative to other parts of the country, such as Guwahati and Vishakapatnam, where many more impoverished youngsters would be able to get hands-on digital resources.

The Aahwahan Foundation is looking for active participation from socially conscious corporations/individuals to enrich the educational journey of rural children. Any support to establish the infrastructure, sponsorships for children, and contribution towards other facilities would be greatly appreciated.
