During the coronavirus lockdown, school tuition also went online in India. However, far from all school pupils are equipped to attend digital courses. In many cases, the right equipment is lacking – especially for families with low incomes.
For this reason, WIKA India has now purchased, for around 31,000 euros, 300 tablets suitable for teaching and donated them to the Chinmaya Vidyalaya School in New Delhi. The devices have internet access via a SIM card. They are all going to the children of low-income families who receive government support to attend school.
Making the donation
The head of WIKA India, alongside other managers, was present at the handover and distribution of the tablets. This subsidiary, across all of its locations, takes its social responsibility seriously and supports a variety of projects.
