The innovative 'Maa Bari' initiative has revamped 30 schools, providing modern infrastructure and facilities to support the education of first-time learners from indigenous tribal communities in Rajasthan. Another noteworthy project, 'Sampark,' aims to enhance the English and Mathematics skills of over 4 lac students in 5800+ government schools in Rajasthan, with plans for expansion.
The 'Digital Shaala' project, an endeavor by IIFL Foundation, introduces more than 5000 students to digital pedagogy through the installation of television sets equipped with audiovisual learning materials covering grades 6 to 10.
