RISE to reduce digital divide

Our Story

Nearly 78% schools in India don’t have internet facilities and more than 61 per cent do not have computers, according to data released by Unified District Information System for Education (UDISE+) for 2019-20.  According to UNICEF-ITU report, two thirds of the world’s school-age children have no internet access at home and an astonishing 88% of School-age children 3-17 years old unconnected at home

Children and young people from the economically disadvantaged households, rural and lower income states are falling even further behind their peers and are left with very little opportunity to ever catch up. “That so many children and young people have no internet at home is more than a digital gap –it is a digital canyon,” said Henrietta Fore, UNICEF Executive Director.

RISE is an initiative  to reduce digital divide by building digital learning incubators that not only provides free access to internet but also to an online library with access to free courses from trusted sources spanning across academics, computing, communication and career. 

Shyam Reganti, Founder

I was born in a small town in Andhra Pradesh, India. Graduated from Anna University and then pursued MBA program offered by JNTU Hyderabad in Collaboration with Central Michigan University. My career spans over 10 years and I had the opportunity to work in different positions including Business Analyst, Systems Analyst and Solution Engineer.

I founded RISE with a vision to create Equal Online Educational Opportunity (EO2) and reduce digital divide, because Digital Learning  is the key to the sustainable development of learners of all ages with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to address the age old challenges including poverty and inequality
