Education

Education is one of the core functional areas of Global Foundation’s intervention. IT education and scholarship scheme are two integral part of our educational objectives. Towards this Global Foundation is responding to the socio-economic needs of the people by bridging the digital divide in rural areas through various IT development projects. Foundation also provides educational scholarships to needy students.

At Global Group we execute O & M and Deployment contracts in rural India. Through our engagement with the community we learnt that IT literacy is still leaps away from the rural population. To bridge this digital divide Global Foundation conceived and started the project GYAN IT to spread computer literacy through training and infrastructure build up.

Global Foundation in association with NASSCOM Foundation started Village Knowledge Centers in Sindhudurg district, Maharashtra. By spreading literacy among families on public health, sanitation and health measures VKCs are playing pivotal role in social transformation. Global Foundation has converted VKC into a physical space that provides public access to value-added Information and Communication Technologies for educational, personal, social and economic development.
In order to spread the light of knowledge and computer education in remote rural areas, Global Foundation has initiated Project KNOW (Knowledge on Wheels). Global Foundation conceptualized and created a state of the art bus equipped with its own generator set, air conditioners and eight computers all networked and loaded with the relevant software for teaching computers. This vehicle moves from one school to another in the identified remote area, where village schools can be covered. The vehicle halts at a particular school for 20 days and provides computer education to children in batches.

Project Gyanjyot is a National Educational Support Program to the children of the earning families whose annual income is below 3.00 Lacs per annum. The Scholarship covers from Jr.Kg to Post Graduation and working students too.
