Wipro’s initiatives in sustainable education are more than a decade old and the approach is multi-stakeholder focused and long-term. The initiatives address diverse stakeholders ranging from colleges from which Wipro recruits a large pool of its human resources to the larger society. It includes local educational institutions, engineering colleges, universities, educational and other civil society organizations, schools, teachers, students and parents.
Over time these have achieved significant scale in terms of 1000s of schools and colleges and more than a million students impacted directly or indirectly. It has also built partnership networks and thus created value through capacity building. Such value though needs to be seen at different levels: The direct value received by someone receiving school education The indirect value in the long-term to society through the capacities that are created, and The indirect business value to Wipro in working towards a more democratic and humane society
Wipro Applying Thought in Schools works on building capacities in school education reform in India. Our work in education is driven by the belief that education is a key enabler of social change. We believe in a social vision of democracy where each citizen is not only capable in an individual sense but also sees the ethic of equity, the essentiality of diversity, the ethos of justice, and is thus driven by social sensitivity. Schools have to be spaces that nurture these principles, capabilities & values.
We believe that a sustained effort is required and our projects are attempts to bring about a change of this kind. Our key strategy is to partner with civil society and other organizations across the country in this endeavor. This gives us higher leverage, deeper connect with the place and also ensures higher sustainability of the initiatives we commence.
Over the years We have built a partner network of 30 of India’s foremost educational organizations Worked with around 2000 schools and 10,500 educators across 17 states reaching around 800,000 students Currently, we are engaged in projects with around 700 schools across the country in partnership with 22 partners
Wipro Applying Thought in Schools is a social initiative of Wipro’s that aims to build capacities for school education reform in India. Towards this, we have identified three key needs in our education system
We need organizations capable of bringing about quality education by working in different parts of India and in different knowledge areas
We need good quality educational material and literature to aid in this effort
We need educationists, parents, government etc. to think and act in an informed manner to make this happen.
