Sonata Software Limited Announces Partnership With Agastya International Foundation to Support Creativity and Innovative Thinking in Rural Schools

Sonata Software Limited, a global IT solutions company announced its partnership with Agastya International Foundation to help spark curiosity and interest in science and mathematics in school students in rural areas, under its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives. The three-year project, funded to the tune of Rs.150 lacs, will focus on promoting Mobile Science Labs for children in rural areas and build a technology platform called 'Lab on a tab', which will help them showcase their science innovations to the schools in remote areas that the Mobile Science labs will reach out to.

Sonata Software, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, has believed in contributing to initiatives that create long term, sustaining impact on society. Focus has been on skill development, employment generation and implementing technology to create a better society. The activities are implemented in collaboration with institutions across a continuum - from primary and middle schools in rural areas and forest buffer zones to funding research in institutes of higher learning such as IISc, IIITB, NITT. Sonata believes in partnering with organizations that have a proven track record and are highly innovative in providing education and capability building to improve the human potential and help individuals lead fuller, richer, more active lives.

"We are thrilled to partner with Sonata Software in providing hands-on, interactive and engaging ways of learning Science and sparking curiosity and instilling the scientific temper in underprivileged children. We are also happy that we can leverage Sonata's technical expertise in further developing our 'Lab on a Tab' program to make it easier for children to absorb science concepts in a fun manner and further scale Agastya's unique learning method," said Ramji Raghavan, Chairman, Agastya International Foundation.

''We believe that our partnership with Agastya's Mobile Science Lab's initiative will help spark curiosity and interest in science and mathematics for the students in remote rural schools. Mobile Science Labs' access to rural schools help raise awareness among economically disadvantaged Government school children on the importance of hands-on science education, while the Lab on Tab along with Hands-On science kits will benefit the government school students immensely in learning. We are committed to our goal of making a difference to wider society with technology through this partnership," said Srikar Reddy, MD & CEO Sonata Software.
