Smart Class Facility Launched For Rural Students

Softvision Foundation launched a Smart Class facility recently at Sumana Vidya Kendra, Melahalli, located around 25 kms from the city

Girish Karunakaran, Softvision and Daniel Giesen-White, CIO-McMillan Shakespeare (MMSG), Australia (a client of Softvision), officially launched the facility at the school. The Foundation also provided computers to the school to help students get hands-on experience with technology.

Inaugurating the Smart Class, Girish Karunakaran said “Our Vision is to empower and transform the lives of the women in rural areas of Mysuru, contributing to the city where Softvision has its largest presence in India; we are committed towards empowering women and educating the girl child. As a step towards this and leveraging the technology is the smart-class facility; we hope this will support the students in their process of gaining knowledge.”

In its endeavor to support the cause of young female education, the Foundation has sponsored 25 girls to receive education at the Sumana school, who otherwise may have had to discontinue their schooling due to lack of funds, as they hail from the underprivileged areas around Melahalli.

Volunteers from the Softvision Foundation and Sumana Vidya Kendra teachers were present on the occasion.

Softvision Foundation is the CSR Wing of Softvision focusing on the causes of women empowerment and young female education.
