Ahmedabad (India CSR): Cygnet Infotech has partnered with the Ahmedabad-based NGO Samerth Charitable Trust to support disadvantaged sections of society through numerous initiatives. The company aims to empower children and support their education by donating 20 laptops and 10 desktop computers.
Commenting on these initiatives, Niraj Hutheesing, Founder and Managing Director of Cygnet Infotech said, “We remain true to our organizational values. We are happy to do our part to support these children and allow them to access digital means of education. Together with our partner CSR, we took over this project to educate children and encourage tutor-supervised learning through digital communication.
Samerth Charitable Trust’s Kutch Campus also houses a hostel for children of families experiencing distress migration – particularly as Salt Pan workers or at Brick Kiln sites. These computers and laptops will help them set up a small computer room on their campus, where the kids at the hostel will be exposed to technology for the very first time.
These computers in our tablet libraries in Ahmedabad are used by the children as well as their educators to learn, among other things, to type longer assignments on Word and Excel.
Corporate social responsibility at Cygnet Infotech is closely tied to the organization’s vision of empowering lives globally with technology-enabled business solutions. Cygnet Infotech’s CSR charter recognizes that digitalization plays an important role in bringing parity in access to learning and opportunities, which might otherwise be inaccessible to large sections of society. The themes of digital literacy and digital skills development aim to expose young minds from less privileged communities to digital learning, thereby fostering curiosity and innovation among them.
