Amidst the geographical, political and social challenges, education plays a pivotal role in enhancing the country’s competitiveness in the global economy. Regarded to be one of the most powerful instruments, it has become central to the economic & social development. Marching towards a developing economy, many schools and colleges across, especially in the rural counterparts are trying to encompass quality & affordable education. One such case is of EPHSS Kishtwar Govt Boys School, Doda& Govt. School of Ramban, in districts of Jammu & Kashmir. The requirement was to teach science subjects specifically for the students of 11th & 12th grade by teaching experts in the politically volatile situation in the valley. Looking into the matter, iScholar Education Services Private Limited, a Bangalore based EdTech company driven to bring social change, collaborated with the Indian army to bring in the best of teachers into their classrooms through the technology of tele education. By designing a special program with insights & inputs gathered from all stake holders, followed by series of instruction, evaluation, and discussion not only ensured the retention of attention but also enabled students to evaluate their
performance through short tests and discussions.

While serving in the army, the idea of initiating an educational platform always on his mind.

Education - For Social Change & Development
Rajendra Prasad Nadella, Founder & CEO, speaks, "Belonging from rural region my personal experiences and hurdles made me think about the lakhs of students who face similar issue. There is a huge existing gap that lies in education accessibility in terms of quality, teaching professionals and so on. Identifying the loopholes, I institutionalized iScholar to address the loopholes and create ample opportunities through technology, content & digitization."
