MG and IIMPACT on December 7 inaugurated their 15th digital learning center in Mewat, Haryana.
Taking further their partnership to ensure a better tomorrow for underprivileged girl children, the inauguration was a part of the ‘Digital Centres – E-Shiksha Ek Nayi Disha’ campaign that aims to establish e-learning centres across the remotest regions in the country.
The e-Shiksha online digital learning centers were launched with the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak in March to support girl child education.
MG and IIMPACT entered into a partnership in 2018 to aid the education of underprivileged girls in India. The partnership is aimed at imparting quality classroom education to girls aged between 6 years and 14 years.
The inaugural ceremony witnessed the participation of several dignitaries including Mr. Rakesh Sidana (National Sales Head, MG Motor India), Ms. Shubhangi Sharma (Executive Director, IIMPACT), and Ms Preeti Munjal (Head- Training & Development, IIMPACT). The event was attended by the local community with representatives from the local panchayat, teachers, and parents of girl children.
Speaking at the inauguration, Mr. Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India, said, “At MG, we always lay emphasis on the key problem areas in society. The e-Shiksha initiative, which was launched in the wake of COVID-19, has taken a step further with 15 such centers converted into digital learning centers to support girl child education.”
Ms. Sharma said, “The learning crisis faced by children, particularly in rural areas, has necessitated all concerned with education to devise new strategies for addressing the need gaps. In this context, the collaboration between MG Motor and IIMPACT for E-Shiksha – Ek Nayi Disha has a great relevance, especially as the IIMPACT learning centers cater to the rural, first-generation learners from underprivileged communities.”
