Smile Foundation

IN10 Media Network's kids channel Gubbare has joined hands with Smile Foundation to support education of underprivileged children through the #ShikshaNaRuke initiative. The objective of this collaboration is to provide underprivileged children access to continuous learning.

Forced to stay indoors with schools being shut down, children became one of the worst sufferers of the pandemic. While many children shifted to digital mode of learning, the less privileged children did not have similar access to technology and their education came to a halt.

The biggest question for these children and their families is – WILL THE PANDEMIC BE AN END TO THEIR EDUCATION, THEIR DREAMS? With one year’s gap in education, over 24 million children* (UN Data) globally are at the risk of dropping out of school. In India, 5.3 percent of rural children aged 6-10 years did not enroll in school in 2020, compared to 1.8 percent in the previous year (ASER 2020).

Join hands with Smile Foundation & IN10 Media Network's kids channel Gubbare to ensure that #ShikshaNaRuke – education does not stop for any child due to the pandemic.
