In this domain, we promote a child-friendly learning environment by developing new technologies and supporting imaginative research through community-based school engagement structures.
Reflecting on the dreams of Dr. Kalam, we have launched 450+ Kalam Libraries for providing free access to books and facilities for youth.
Through a school adoption cum community service program, we empower the children at the government school, madrasa and children observation homes with the inherent wisdom of Indian culture along with the emerging technologies of tomorrow.
We also initiated a nation-wide campaign called Dreamathon, which benefited about a million children by giving them mentorship and a platform to voice their opinion through artwork and creative writing.
Ranging from academics to life skills, some of our programs include international collaborations such as the one with the University of Edinburgh where we are engaging Indian students in the Mine Analogue Research (MINAR) program at 1 km depth in the Boulby Mine, United Kingdom.
Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam believed every youth in the country should have access to a library as a matter of right. He wanted to open the world of knowledge for them – let them fly, fly high so that they realize that nothing is impossible in life.
Continuing with the mission of Universal Literacy, we have opened more 450+ libraries across 14 states of the country.
