Tata Technologies, a global IT conglomerate, has signed an MoU with The Rotary Foundation to support poor children. It has identified the need for encouraging and helping children to learn with the help of technology. Popularly known as “School and Teaching Excellence Programme” or STEP, this project is targeted at underprivileged students and brings in technology as a teaching aid to improve student retention and enhance their overall academic performance.
The ultimate objective of Tata Technologies is to extend its STEP initiative at a national level to cover the goal of basic education and literacy for all. In partnership with TRF, it aims to reach this programme to over 1,000 schools all over India.
An agreement of cooperation was signed at the Hinjewadi headquarter of Tata Technologies by its Chairman S Ramdorai, Global CEO Warren Harris, PDG Ravee Dhotre and District Foundation Chairman Deepak Shikarpur.
