Pune: MIT Art, Design and Technology University has launched a fundraiser campaign along with Metta Social Solutions and non-governmental organisations Hope for the Children Foundation and Nanhe Farishte to provide 10,000 laptops to underprivileged children over six months.

The fundraiser is called Digital Daana campaign and was launched after school education became heavily dependent on online mode. In a statement, Iftekhar Pathan, Co-Founder of Metta Social Solutions, said the digital divide could set back the students’ progress by two-three years and may leave a long-lasting negative impact.

Dean Sunita Karad, in her statement, said,“Blended learning is the future. Digital Daana initiative will run for three years and hopes to reach a large number of deserving students,”it added. The campaign has targeted one million students.
