India’s maiden ‘Festival of Education’ (FoE) in Rajasthan paved way for a series of novel beginnings and ambitious projects, including the successful launch of Gyan Sampark portal.
Amidst the various address speeches and key note addresses by national and international guests, CM Raje launched an education CSR portal name ‘Gyaan Sampark App’ at the inaugural session of the Festival.
The Gyaan Sampart Portal can be downloaded on Android from Play Store. It also has a separate section for ensuring seamless contributions and donations, which would further benefit children who cannot afford a good quality education.
This portal is a comprehensive platform for making ‘education in Rajasthan’ possible for all. Renowned dignitaries and experts see it as a source of instrumental change in the education health of the desert state.
Quality and equal opportunities of education to all
CM Raje pledged for making streamlined efforts to ensure quality and equal opportunities of education to all.
“Given the geographical and demographical circumstances of the state, providing quality education to the children was a big challenge,” she said while addressing the gathering of educationists and researchers, teachers and parents at the FoE.
However, she highlighted the various transformational and unprecedented measures she took to usher in a changed scenario in the education realms of Rajasthan. She made education learning-based and activity-based, thereby giving the opportunity to students to understand practical life with bookish knowledge.
With the multifarious efforts made by the government, the talented students are starting to get opportunities of higher studies in medical, engineering, law, management and other such disciplines, she added.
Teaching Skills to students
CM Raje is of the firm belief that skills are necessary for any student. She said that a mere degree is not enough for the youth.
Interestingly, Rajasthan is among the top state in providing skill education to the youth. She said that two new skill universities have been established here.
Moreover, CM Raje invited private sector establishments to invest for development of basic infrastructure in education.
Member of UK’s House of Lords and Deputy Chair of British Council Baroness Usha Prasar highly appreciated CM Smt. Raje for her vision in extending and expanding education to the last child in the corner.
