The urban-rural divide in India is an imminent cause of concern, particularly in the case of access to quality education and allied facilities. According to a 2015 World Bank report, around 67% of the total population in India is attributed to those in the country’s villages. However, there exists a considerable gap in terms of supply and demand in terms of basic facilities provided for the benefit of the rural population. This is more so in the case of education and employment facilities and opportunities. In comparison to Urban India, rural literacy rates continue to remain low.
As an organization, Computer Age Management Services (CAMS) has immense faith in the power of education and has supported several transformational educational initiatives till date. The company is committed to investing in the intellectual capabilities of today’s youth to build a stronger, better and safer world in the future.
Mindful of the need to bridge the gap for quality education in rural India CAMS had joined hands with AIM for Seva, a Chennai-based NGO dedicated to providing value based education to the children of rural India. Besides supporting various projects around the country, the AIM for Seva also runs operations in Australia, Canada and the United States of America.
Given that a majority of problems affecting Indian rural education revolve around accessibility to schools and high dropout frequency, AIM for Seva has extended its support. The charitable organization identifies and addresses the root causes by implementing innovative measures such as Free Student Homes (FSH). At these FSHs, the children benefit from easy access to school, shelter, food and clothing, along with value education, life skills, IT skills and an assortment of extra-curricular activities.
In an effort to support this noble initiative, CAMS has covered the expenses of 40 students, helping them meet the costs pertaining to education, uniforms, stationery, lodging, food, books and other relevant study materials.
