WIPRO

Wipro’s initiative to help in societal change and development focuses to improve the quality of education in schools. Schools across the country tend to be regimented and homogenous, with no space for individual interpretations or conceptual learning – memorizing is learning. They also 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 and values. They work towards bringing about this change through partnerships with civil society organizations.
