Wipro believes that Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) have a significant role to play in bringing about systemic change in school education and that for a country of India’s size and diversity there needs to a large number of capable organizations engaged in this task. This is especially true for the relatively lesser developed regions of our country.
Over the past years, we have thus engaged with about 60 organizations of diverse kinds working in different parts of the country, many of which have made significant contributions to school education over the last decade. We further believe that it is through years of focused and sustained work that organizations achieve the deep understanding, expertise, maturity and credibility required to influence and create systemic impact; and also recognize the continuing dearth of such organizations in various parts of the country.
Wipro’s Seeding Programme for Educational CSOs thus supports the creation and development of new educational organizations that can contribute meaningfully to Indian school education; by supporting committed and capable teams and individuals who share our vision of good quality education being available to every Indian child, through a 3-year Founders’ Fellowship – to set up effective educational NGOs, in geographies of their choice.
If you are an educational institution, Fellowship programme, government body, NGO or subject-matter expert in the domain of school-education and relate to the vision of a vibrant network of effective educational CSOs in different parts of the country, do write to us! We would love to hear from you and explore how we can partner to achieve our common vision together.
