About NGO:

AID INDIA is a non-profit organization, founded in 1996, by a group of IIT and BITS alumni who quit corporate careers to work on various development initiatives. AID INDIA’s education initiative 'Eureka Child', where 'Eureka' represents the spirit of discovery, focuses primarily on education quality improvement programs in Tamilnadu

Fund Usage:

The target amount to be raised is Rs. 15 lakhs. It will go towards the following cause - Digital enablement of education for children in government schools (Increasing conceptual understanding and analytical thinking). Read more about the cause here.

Our objective is to increase conceptual understanding and analytical thinking of children thereby reducing school dropouts and improving pass percentage. A study conducted by AID India found significant improvement in children’s skills levels in centres where tablets are used especially when explaining higher level concepts and in improving speed and accuracy in Math.

In 2015, a tablet program was launched at ESK centres, where tablets loaded with Math apps and procedure videos, and English phonics-based audio and video files are provided for use of children enrolled at the centres. The tablets proved especially useful for helping children learn how to read phonetically..Read more about the cause here
