Shaping futures through education excellence

Project Gyandeep: A comprehensive initiative designed to address critical challenges at grassroots-level education

Mahindra’s Swaraj division recently launched Project Gyandeep during a special ceremony held at the Deputy Commissioner SAS Nagar Complex, Punjab . This comprehensive education-focused initiative is designed to address critical challenges at grassroots-level education and comprises two programmes.

The programmes include

Swaraj Shakti Scholarship programme
This programme aims to empower and encourage female students of classes X and XII from low-income families in the SAS Nagar district to pursue education and foster self-reliance. To be eligible for this scholarship, students must demonstrate academic excellence with a minimum of 55% marks in the previous class, along with a financial need (family income not exceeding ₹ 4 Lakh per annum). Selected students will receive a fixed financial assistance of ₹ 7000, intended for academic purposes such as tuition fees, books, stationery and travel expenses.

Mobile STEM learning for government schools
This programme addresses the opportunity gap in education through scalable, hands-on experiential learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) for students in government schools. It targets government school children in Classes VI - X in SAS Nagar and includes various activities such as hands-on sessions, summer/winter camps, science fairs and young instructor training. The overall goal is to increase awareness of alternative learning methods, enhance curiosity and explorative behaviour, boost confidence in exchanging and communicating ideas and foster increased interest in and understanding of science concepts.

Project Gyandeep Initiative is all set to send ripples of change in the landscape of education, affirming its commitment to fostering brighter, more empowered futures for the communities it serves.
