Newgen Software has always believed that every child in India has an undeniable right to quality and equitable education. To foster a progressive ecosystem for the children with lesser means, Newgen initiated ‘Sadbhavna’, a philanthropic educational support system, in 2006. The initiative aims to create awareness among children and help realize their dreams by providing a platform for their education. It was a steppingstone on Newgen’s path to become a socially responsible corporate.
After CSR was made mandatory under the Company’s Act, Newgen formally started with its core CSR programs in 2014, continuing with the values of ‘Sadbhavna’. It was a smooth transition for the organization as we were already moving in this direction.
Today, Newgen is working towards the holistic development of children with an integrated CSR program constituting the following initiatives:
- Newgen Digital Discovery Paathshala (NDDP)
- NDDP Alumni Initiative
- Remedial Education Program
Our continued commitment towards children’s education led to the inception of NDDP in 2016. The program caters over 3000 students from classes 6th to 8th of government schools in Delhi. The initiative is designed to impart knowledge to school children using web-based technology and transform traditional classroom teachings into fun learning sessions.
The facilitators use innovative ways such as iPads, role-plays, quizzes, audiovisual, and other digital mediums during the digital literacy sessions to help the students thoroughly grasp textbook concepts.
The content of NDDP is designed in-house for the students and is aligned with their learning requirements. Remedial camps are also conducted to bring the less digitally proficient students at par with their peers.
During the COVID-19 lockdown, it became mandatory for the government schools to conduct online classes, and the learnings from NDDP sessions made the process easier for the students.
We have observed the impact of NDDP amplify over the years and bridge the gap between digital literacy and education.
NDDP Alumni Initiative
To expand NDDP’s outreach, we have set up an alumni initiative to bring in the bright ex-students of NDDP for providing career counseling, personality development, and soft skills training to the students.
The meritorious alumni will be parallelly integrated into a specialized personality development program implemented by the trained professionals of I-Am. We also plan to introduce scholarships to sponsor their higher education.
Remedial Education Program
In association with KHUSHII (Kinship for Humanitarian, Social and Holistic Intervention in India), we have started offering remedial education to nearly 6,000 students from MCD feeder schools in Okhla. The program helps us connect with students from classes 1st to 5th. As they enter class 6th, they can become a part of NDDP, and can further enroll under the alumni program post class 8th. This helps us connect the dots and groom the children over an extended period.
Apart from the integrated CSR program, we are also providing mid-day meals to approximately 9,000 children in remote areas across the country. The project is being implemented in association with The Akshaya Patra Foundation and ensures that all school-going students are served a fresh and nutritious meal.
With an effort to synchronize our initiatives, we are trying to build a better future for the children. The acceptance that we have received is exceptional and it encourages us to continue working towards the overall improvement of the community.
