As part of its school-adoption programme in Indore, IndiGo will help transform the quality of education for students across 15 government schools. The programme will help these schools through physical infrastructure development, academic transformation and access to digital technology. As part of infrastructural development, the schools have been repainted, repaired and reconstructed with basic amenities such as toilet blocks, libraries, science labs and sports facilities like badminton courts. IndiGo is also conducting teacher-training programmes for better delivery of education and enabling conceptual learning for students.
Education is one of the four focus areas of CSR initiatives at IndiGo, with the airline claiming to have impacted the lives of more than 33,000 children since 2015. It hopes to impact 20,000 students through this initiative. The airline has partnered with SRF Foundation to set up this programme in 60 government schools across 4 cities – Indore, Dehradun, Vadodara and Greater Noida.
CB’s questions on the details of the programme including duration and impact assessment did not receive any response from the company.
