Vevji, Palghar District (Maharashtra) [India], March 14: BCAS (Bombay Chartered Accountant Society) FOUNDATION Provided 23 Digital Classroom kits (43” Android TV with preloaded Maharashtra state Board Syllabus licensed content in AV form and hardware). BCAS understood the depth of the local problem and promptly offered a helping hand.

BCAS supported the initiative – “Mission Zero School Drop Out” to help TRIBAL Children by making sure that they get a minimum of 12th-grade educated. In the Tribal area, the School dropout rate is 72% which is 6 times the national average of 12.6%, and it’s very alarming. Every year, a large number of students drop out of school in India; this hinders their economic and social well-being as well as reduces the literacy rate of the country and creates a non-innovative environment & Unemployable population. 

The Chief guest for the launch event was CA. Mihir Sheth, President-BCAS; Dr. CA. Mayur Naik Trustee & Chairman of Project Committee, CA. Chirag Doshi VP- BCAS & few Govt. Authority was also present on occasion.

About the “BCAS Foundation” – BCAS foundation, which was founded to support education and medical aid has helped many worthy institutions for the purpose. It has supported the efforts of the Local volunteers at Vevji schools by equipping them with 23 TVs with preloaded education software, which will be useful to 12 schools in the tribal area where finding teachers is a challenge. With the digital classroom, this challenge will be overcome. During the visit of its Trustees Mihir Sheth, Chirag Doshi and Mayur Nayak at the school, they were very impressed with the enthusiasm of the children’s teachers and volunteers. They have perceived the need to do much more and have promised their best support.

This Project was executed with the implementing agency as The 2nd Birth (A project by RUSHABH FOUNDATION) founded by Mahendra Vanigota.
