Education Department of Sikkim signs MoU with 17000 Ft Foundation to enhance learning level in elementary level in remote areas.
17000 Ft Foundation has impacted over 200 remote frontier villages of Leh and Kargil Districts in Ladakh by improving infrastructure and learning resources in their Govt. Elementary Schools, thereby reducing the exodus of young children to faraway towns, leading to strengthened families, educated communities, and a resilient, self-sustaining region.
As part of the partnership, 17000 Ft Foundation will be transforming a pilot set of Govt. Schools in the physically remote and network shadow areas in the State of Sikkim with child-friendly school infrastructure and improved learning resources, including a specialized digital learning solution designed for off-grid and off-network regions. The Foundation will also be building the capacity of teachers and mobilizing the community into taking a more active role in their child’s school.
The Memorandum of Understanding has been signed by Shri Sandeep Sahu, Director, on behalf of the 17000 Ft Foundation and Shri Bhim Thatal, Special Secretary and Director, Elementary Education and SPD, Samagra Shiksha. Shri Bhim Thatal officially handed over the MoU to Shri Sandeep Sahu, Director- 17000Ft Foundation.
