About Us

RAISING STANDARDS OF EDUCATION BY GOING DIGITAL (RAISED) aims at developing a model of 10 schools in Bisrakh block of Gautam Buddha Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh into RTE compliant schools. The project proposes to augment the available infrastructural facilities by leveraging on the government network to ensure their support and value it against the guidelines laid down by the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education, 2009. The project proposes that the development of infrastructural services provided at these schools would support in enhancing the quality of teaching and learning in the school. RAISED plans to take the education level on excellence by using modern teaching methods with the help of ICTs and other suitable resources.

The programme ensures that the basic needs of every school including health, hygiene, cleanliness, digital citizenship, safety and security are fulfilled. The programme would help in raising and maintaining the quality of education in schools. This programme is specially designed for the students, teachers, schools and citizens to help them improve their communication abilities and develop skill with computer literacy, thereby contributing to the betterment of society. Aligning with Digital India, this programme is an initiative taken to spread awareness in the society about Internet, Wi-Fi, Hot-Spot and e-Learning by equipping schools with digital facilities. All these facilities give platform to schools for their multidimensional development and provide them with better working system, so that they can give greater output than their estimated strength in coming future.

The project is implemented by Digital Empowerment Foundation , a not for profit registered in New Delhi in 2002 supported by Capgemini India ,one of the world‟s foremost providers of consulting, technology, outsourcing services and professional services.

All these facilities are giving platform to the Schools for their multidimensional development and giving them better working system, so that they can give output more than estimated strength in coming future.
