As part of its education portfolio, Vodafone Idea Foundation created India’s largest multi-lingual (English plus seven Indian languages) online scholarship discovery and assistance platform – www.learningwithvodafoneidea.in – which houses information on scholarships for students and teachers worth more than Rs. 15,000 crores.
Since the portal was made live in August 2017, we have helped around 36,000 students get a scholarship, several of whom were helped for the first time. We reached out to more than 10 lakh students through a mix of offline programmes and online campaigns to reach as many students as possible.
In our journey of helping students fulfil their dreams, we have come across several well-deserving students and teachers who need immediate support. Despite the extremely important roles that teachers play in the education sector, their efforts and participation as real change makers is not recognized and appreciated enough.
Due to this, Vodafone Idea Foundation launched a new free scholarship programme called ‘VI Teachers’ and Students’ Scholarship’ in 2020. With the aim to help students and facilitate teachers in their effort to bring about real change, we recognized 200 teachers and supported 2500 students with this free scholarship in India.
