  1. Record Video Capsule

On March 15, 2020, all schools across India were closed due to the COVID19 pandemic and the consequent lockdown. Students from urban schools were able to shift to online classes, but rural children were unable to do so. Keeping this in mind, we are working towards adapting our model to ensure that Rural India continues to Learn. eVidyaloka is trying to bring solution by enabling Teaching through Television, so that students can continue to Learn from Home during this time.

Project Goodbook – Survey for Volunteers & Donors

We are students of Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology. We are currently developing a platform to help prospective volunteers and donors to explore the myriad of NGOs available in the Indian scene. On that end, we would be grateful, if you could forward the following surveys to people who have either volunteered or donated in the past for their feedback and their experience in exploring various NGOs.

Click here for survey form for Donors

Details of the platform: The platform, currently codenamed ‘Project Goodbook’ will be a social network of sorts for various volunteers and donors to easily explore the various NGOs currently working in the fields of their choices. The platform will allow donors to easily donate and track the receipts of their donations. The volunteers can volunteer for various organized events by the NGOs and the platform will also allow NGOs to find sponsors for their events as commercial organizations can make accounts to sponsor various events. We are currently looking for features to include in our platform so as to make it fruitful for the users of the platform.
