Digilabs by Hero Future Energies & Raman Kant Munjal Foundation

Schools so high up in the mountainsof Ladakh face a number of infrastructural issues, owing to the terrain and the harsh climate. For one, people can only reach these schools by walking. Besides this, the lack of a constant supply of electricity also hinders their progress. While it is true that they have learnt to live within the constraints around them, there’s no doubt it greatly limits the opportunities for them to grow. To help overcome these barriers and enable the development of these children, we needed an educational solution that was intuitive, more current and helped them learn better.

HFE teamed up with the Raman Kant Munjal Foundation (RKMF), a Hero Group initiative that actively works for women empowerment, rural upliftment and education for this initiative of setting up Digilabs in 10 schools of Leh and Kargil.

It was a pairing of two brilliant things – renewable energy and education – to help enhance modes of learning for schoolchildren in Leh and Kargil.

Together with the 17,000ft Foundation, HFE has distributed 80 tablets throughout 10 schools in Kargil and Leh -- MS Darchiks, MS KGBV Chiktan, GM Pre, MS Samar, MS Dokschutumail in Kargil and MS Skurbuchan, HS Nimo, MS Skara, PS Farol Tyakshi, MS Changmor. Mr.Rahul Munjal, CMD Hero Future Energies visited HS Nimo and inaugurated the Digilab at the school.

The tablets are pre-programmed with educational applications, are easy to understand and intuitive to use. To ensure that the tablets can be recharged regularly, the HFE team has set up solar panels in these schools. We have set up a solar-storage solution that empowers both the children and teachers in the long run.

Thank you HFE and RKMF for the joint effort!
