Spreading Happiness Indiya Foundation Facilitating Digital Education To Rural Students
The foundation has come up with a concept of solar-powered 'Digi Green' classrooms that use technologies to conduct virtual training for students
Spreading Happiness InDiya Foundation (SHIF), a non-profit collaboration between cricketing icon Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar and Schneider Electric India is on a mission to provide access to digital education in more than 150 rural Indian schools by 2025 under the SMITA Programme. Through this association, they aim to introduce the concept of Digi Green wherein they will provide access to digital education infrastructure powered by solar energy and create awareness among the children of the country about the conservation of energy and the environment.
The foundation has come up with a concept of solar-powered 'Digi Green' classrooms that use technologies to conduct virtual training for students. Through this combination of solar energy and technology, the 'Digi Green' classrooms are eco-forward and help save money for schools in terms of running costs, while also providing virtual training modes to optimise learning outcomes. Since these classrooms are run completely on solar power, it has a ‘net-zero’ carbon footprint, further enabling the schools to earn carbon credits.
