The programme aims to enable both parents and teachers to actively aid in the educational development of the child, while using a PC and create an encompassing ecosystem and supportive background for the child. The year-long project aims to reach one million students and 1,00,000 teachers across 5,000 schools; and 2, 00,000 parents in 75 cities across the country.
