Soumya Kanti, President, Edureach said, “At Edureach, we use technology innovatively to spread education across socio-economic strata and across geographical boundaries. We are pleased that around 2.7 Lakhs students across these 540 schools in Maharashtra will now have access to computers and computer-aided learning which will bring their learning on par with many of their more privileged city counterparts.”
