Project Description

The Company has contributed towards promoting education through;

  • Provided donations to the Data Security Council of India
  • Provided donations to the Indian Institute of Information Technology for various purposes
  • Provided donations for the Aarohan Social Innovation Awards across India
  • Made donations to the Parivaar Education Society for various initiatives
  • Contributed funds to the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research for promoting education

Morepver, the mission of the company has been to help students from low-income groups studying in government schools, to achieve stable, high-paying careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The foundation has been partnering with them since 2014 and the collaboration has helped Avanti scale to new geographies while sustaining the current interventions. Avanti Fellows’ project with the Foundation runs on a unique “peer learning” pedagogy, which has been developed after 20 years of research at Harvard University. It focuses on students taking ownership of their learning through debate, collaborative problem-solving, and testing, supported by structured digital and printed study materials. The approach has been very successful in facilitating a switch from didactic “chalk and talk” teaching to peer-to-peer instruction. It has also made effective use of technology to equip teachers and students with minute-by-minute lesson plans and levelled learning materials. The partnership has helped underprivileged students get access to quality STEM education and achieve their dreams of getting admission to the Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) and National Institute of Technology (NITs). The grant has also helped the team add medical coaching classes into the program, which has allowed students to sit for the NEET examination and reach the best government run medical colleges. Avanti had been working with the JNV school system from earlier, but with the help of the Foundation grants, the team has been able to expand to new schools and states. At present, the Foundation’s support helps run five schools in Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Odisha. For students who cannot afford expensive coaching in advanced Math and Science, Avanti Fellows, aided by Infosys Foundation, has been a huge help. Over 50% of Avanti students have been clearing the IIT JEE and NEET every year.

The company has also made contributions to the Ramakrishna Mission to promote education. The Foundation also recognized the need to take care of the poor and underprivileged, daily wagers whose livelihoods were impacted, which was also fulfilled through Ramakrishna Mission initiatives.
