In line with the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Pratham InfoTech Foundation joined in the cause and made it its mission too.

map Swachh Vidyalay Campaign is what we at Pratham InfoTech Foundation strive to undertake and keep it going. Over 500 schools with over 1.5 lac students across Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra and West Bengal where in PIF has its CAL and DLLS program operating, pledged to participate in the Swachh Vidyalay Campaign all through January 2015.


So how did we do it?

map As part of the campaign, classroom presentations were made by PIF's teaching staff. These informative presentations and workshops helped the students understand the importance of cleanliness and the benefits of living in healthy surroundings. They were also more informed as to how to contribute towards making this possible.

They were taught with demonstration about hand washing and the right way to do it. They also participated in hand washing sessions.

Next, the students along with their teachers began cleaning their classroom, school surroundings and at some places, even their neighbourhood and roads leading to their school.

The students prepared banners, posers, models and had exhibitions. They also went on a rally where they shouted out slogans on cleanliness in order to spread awareness in the surrounding communities.

Was CAL and DLLS the only ones? Well.... NO!

PIF's Student Enrichment Program also jumped in and pledged to be clean and keep clean! The Swachh Vidyalay Campaign was carried out in 21 schools across Mumbai wherein 8512 students participated and helped keep their school and surroundings clean.

Thus the campaign proved to be a huge success not just in making the schools clean but also in inculcating the right values in young minds, a start to bringing about a change in behaviour and making the students, teachers, school authorities as well as parents and community members feel responsible for what they want, like and have a right to have.. and that is clean schools and clean surroundings!!


And what was the IDI program busy with?

map Now that the 1st batch has ended and the students have successfully completed their course, it's time to get them placed! The IDI team was busy building partnerships with companies, organizing job fairs, preparing the students for interviews, setting up interviews with reputed organizations and well... hoping for the best for each one of them.



map Our newly built placement partners are Svasti Micro finance Pvt. Ltd and Veenus Consultancy. We look forward to many years of productive growth and expansion on this front.


map कहानी एक बेटे की...

वो चाहती थी की आगे बढे, पढ़ाई करें. खुद के बलबूते बैंकिंग क्षेत्र से जुड़े, कई बार प्रयत्न भी किए, लेकिन जिंदगी की लकीरें उसे कहीं और ही ले गई. लेकिन आज भी वो किसी नगीने से कम नहीं.

“कौन कहता है की बादलों में सुराख़ नहीं हो सकता, एक पत्थर तो तबियत से उछालों यारो...” आइये मिलते है एक अटूट, साहसी जिम्मेदार लड़की से जिसने बुरे वक़्त को, कड़ी मेहनत और मंसूबे से अपने पांव के नीचे ला खड़ा किया. पेश है कहानी एक बेटे की....
