“A child without education is like a bird without wings. Education is the single most powerful intervention for transforming lives. By providing children with education we help save them from the clutches of poverty, crime and drugs and helplessness. Knowledge and skills impact not only life’s reward but self-esteem. I hope this innovative ICT intervention will provide effective educational and digital learning opportunities to the local slum kids and will make them able to develop into better people.”- Edwin Bowles, General Manager of KrisEnergy.

The project “Hole in the Wall” will be making internet available to the thousands of the kids from underprivileged community of the Karail slum and also will be giving them the opportunity of experiencing educational games and informative animations.
