Education for All (SDG 4)

Digital learning centres have been established in remote areas, along with community development centres aimed at uplifting communities as children are being given tuition, Spoken English classes, Entrepreneurship workshops, motivational speeches by experts, and career counselling for their all-round development. To ensure quality education, we have implemented the ‘mind opening technique’ in government primary schools. the Avaada Foundation has revolutionized a boarding school by installing a cutting-edge solar water heater. Additionally installed solar panels, guaranteeing an unceasing power supply. This visionary endeavor is set to empower students with an environment conducive to learning, ensuring uninterrupted access to electricity, and thereby illuminating their educational journey.
