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

BANGALORE, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
