Aadhar Housing Finance Limited Accelerates Digital Literacy Programme in Rajasthan


Jaipur: Aadhar Housing Finance Limited in association with Y4D Foundation, installed Digital Training Centres in ten government schools in Rajasthan as part of ‘Aadhar Kaushal’ a CSR initiative focused on skilling and development of the larger strata of the society. Chief Guest Shri Yogeshwar Dutt (Olympic Medallist) inaugurated the Digital Training Centre for the students of Rajasthan in the presence of the guests of honours – Shri Shyam Sunder Paliwal (Social Activist) and Shri Hrishikesh Jha (CSR Head, Aadhar Housing Finance Limited).

The Digital Training Centres, interactive e-learning tools, and infrastructure across each of the government schools includes a modern computer lab with 21 computers with multimedia software, a projector that magnifies the image on a large screen, a smart board and furniture. This initiative is based on the belief that quality education should not be a privilege and reserved for a few but should be available to all. This goal can be achieved in the digital age and the students can be made future-ready if schools are digitally well equipped.

The establishment of these Digital Classrooms in Government schools will enhance the quality of teaching and learning experience. Digital literacy has increased information that can be effortlessly accessed and used to facilitate collaboration and knowledge sharing.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri Deo Shankar Tripathi, MD & CEO, Aadhar Housing Finance said, “Quality education, in every sense, plays a significant role in achieving sustainable economic development and no country can secure economic and social progress without substantial investment in education. It becomes our natural responsibility to ensure that we take initiatives that can facilitate the growth of digital education which will definitely bring positive and meaningful change in the lives of the people.”

“The key difference between traditional teaching techniques and new-age smart learning education is the use of tools and equal participation of teachers and students. Smart learning education system attempts at developing quick learning skills where teachers participate with students via learning tools and techniques. Use of tools like online placards, games, puzzles or other challenging apps will stimulate the brain cells to actively metabolise the input, unleashing a new perspective,” added Praful Nikam, Founder President, Y4D Foundation.

“Visual learning using smart technology elements like graphs, images, charts, presentations, etc are considered highly effective in making students grasp the subject quicker. The students learn effectively and, therefore, they can retain more information and it helps teachers and students to be more enthusiastic in the teaching-learning process,” said Yogeshwar Dutt.

The company has made significant efforts to integrate technology into the educational system, supporting the digital classroom initiative by installing interactive digital set-ups in ten government schools in Jaipur, namely:
