Xiaomi Will Give Rs 2 Cr Worth Of Smartphones For Free
In a video message, Xiaomi India’s chief operating officer Muralikrishnan B has announced that their company will provide free smartphones worth Rs 2 crore to Indian children.
Around 2500 smartphones will be provided for free.
This is an initiative by Xiaomi to promote and encourage online education among Indian kids, who cannot afford a smartphone.
For this, Xiaomi has partnered with their retail distributors and sellers for ensuring that the smartphones reach the needy. Teach for India, which is an NGO has been roped in as an implementation partner.
He said, “MI India distribution and retails came up with a fantastic idea. Together they will be contributing 2,500 smartphones to enable children most impacted by the pandemic to access quality education. In this endeavour we found the right partner Teach for India who is committed to the cause,”
Manu Kumar Jain, India CEO of Xiaomi has appealed to everyone to let them know which are the needy kids who need these free smartphones.
It’s not yet clear which model of Xiaomi smartphones will be provided.
Nonetheless, this is a noble initiative by Xiaomi as a way to giving back to society, and to help the children embrace online education with full force.
Why Xiaomi’s Initiative Is A Wonderful Initiative?
As per Teach India, each smartphone can help 7 children on an average to learn online, and to get education via Internet and the World wide Web.
And in India, not every kid has a smartphone.
Since the lockdown started, online education and online classes is the buzz-word, but unfortunately only 8% Indian children have the capability and the means to continue online classes.
We hope that more and more smartphone brands join this initiative, and provide free smartphones to the under-priviledged and the needy.
