E-commerce company Snapdeal on July 21 announced a partnership with Khan Academy, an educational non-profit organisation, to launch ‘The Foundation Program’, a digital learning initiative for students of Class 1-10.
The partnership aims to minimise the learning gaps in children and build a solid foundation for the next class, said a press release.
The Program will focus on revising important concepts from the previous year in Math and language comprehension, helping students build a strong foundation for the new class. In line with Khan Academy’s mission to provide free, world-class education, all the resources available to parents and learners are free, said the release.
“The school closures have affected millions of families, with significant and extended disruption of academic schedules. We are delighted to partner with Khan Academy, whose standards of academic excellence are globally recognised. This joint initiative will help students practice at their own pace and will also help accelerate their learning,” said Rajnish Wahi, Senior Vice-President, Snapdeal.
Sandeep Bapna, Managing Director, Khan Academy India, said, “We are excited to join hands with Snapdeal to offer free, world-class education to all learners from their sellers’ families. This programme is specially curated, keeping in mind that students can stay up to date by learning only what is necessary.”
