To pace up with the technological necessities of the 21st century and to equip the future generation of the village with the indispensable technologies Team UBA IIT Roorkee took the initiative to digitize Government inter-college (GIC), Horawala. Setting up a digitized environment in the school would help teachers to explain various concepts to the students in a much effective manner. Team UBA collaborated with Srijan Foundation, a non-profit organization to set up the Digi School at GIC, Horawala.
The initiative got a positive response from the Chandpur -Horawala students as well as residents. The initiative focused to convert the schools which could step up with the current generation smart class. The facilities include:
- Proper furniture - Repair of leaking ceiling - Computer installation - Projector and smartboard
October 12, 2019 marked the inauguration of Digi school at GIC, Horawala. Teachers and students were taught to operate the smartboard by the volunteers of Srijan Foundation as well as members of UBA.
The aim of this initiative was simple, allowing the students to excel in their life and making sure that financial status does not determine their future.
