HOW WE PROGRESSED
Abheda Foundation is a non-profit trust formed by an ideal mix of philanthropists and IT professionals. It set forth its journey in 2012 with a mandate to serve the underprivileged of India through education. From the milestones achieved, it is evident that our initial objective of serving the underprivileged took the form of digital education in the years to come. Orientation to digital contents and methods then culminated in the launching of Abheda English and English CourseTutor, our free flagship products for teaching English and subsequently many a project for delivery of the apps and more. A big leap, however, was achieved by building Abheda eSchool at Jalangi Murshidabad. Now we have another Abheda eSchool at Jhargram.
Another major milestone is the enhancement of Swami Vivekananda Scholarship Program in 2017. Though it has been running for long, a push was very much necessary to attract external sponsors and monitors. So through a new initiative 'Extend Your Family' we could add 40 students in 2017.
2018 saw more energy and synergy in i) upgrading and publicizing the two apps, ii) conceptualizing and implementing the processes relating to the scaled-up scholarship program, iii) tying up with institutions like Netaji Subhas Open University and with CSR initiatives of ONGC and Bentley Systems, iv) designing courses Easy English and Communicative English for students and professionals, v) extending content delivery through Abheda eSchool at Jhargram and vi) adding 45 more student members to our Swami Vivekananda Scholarship Program..
