Pune, 15 November, 2016 – Tata Technologies, a leading global provider of engineering services and manufacturing enterprise IT, signs Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Rotary India Literacy Mission (RILM) and Rotary Club Poona North (RCPN). These alliances will further strengthen the ongoing School and Teaching Excellence Program (STEP). A total of three MoU’s have been signed out which two are with the Rotary Club Poona North (RCPN). As per the first MoU, Tata Technologies will be donating approximately 200 e-learning kits for schools in Maharashtra. The second MoU, which, for the first time has Tata Motors on board as partner, will enable the STEP program to expand its footprint in Gujarat. The MoU with Rotary India Literacy Mission (RILM), will help Tata Technologies take the initiative to support education of the underprivileged students in different regions and geographies nationally.
As a part of this program Tata Technologies will be installing interactive e-learning systems at schools which will aid teaching and encourage learning among children. For the past three years in partnership with Rotary Club Poona North (RCPN), STEP has been successfully implemented in government supported schools across Maharashtra touching over three lakh students. This has facilitated adoption of technology-based e-learning systems including digitalized K12 course modules which have been installed to help students develop an aptitude for Science and Mathematics. In 2015-16, more than 750 integrated learning solutions have been installed at around 600 schools across Maharashtra.
On this momentous occasion, Mr. Anubhav Kapoor, General Counsel and Company Secretary, Tata Technologies said “We are absolutely delighted to take the STEP initiative across the nation.
