Fund Appeal for IT Education Project

It is proven beyond doubt that good computer education is the only route to a better future. Education driven by SCALE is more about knowledge, good culture, creativity, positive attitude and well-placed confidence.

SCALE believes in equipping teachers as well as the students with the essential and practical knowledge in computers. SCALE along with Computer Shiksha has introduced Computer Smart Learning in around 130 rural schools in Uttarakhand. Over 30000 school children are benefitting from this initiative. Apart from this, SCALE has donated 8000 educational books to schools on India-China border. Besides, 19 schools in this border region are being provided with IT education.

However, these efforts are not enough, and we want in 2019-21 IT education to be taken to additional 100 rural schools in Uttarakhand. For this, we need your assistance. Your participation in our mission will play a key role in its success. We hope to get your valuable support to build a knowledge-driven society.

Over the last 18-odd years, SCALE has been working only through donations made by members, corporates and credible individuals. We request more individuals to join us in our noble cause. Your collaboration with SCALE will bring cheer, hope & livelihood to more lives.
