As part of our global commitment to developing the next generation of technologists, we support nonprofit organizations focused on computer science and STEAM education. Our grant to Pratham Books funds the development and distribution of openly licensed, nonfiction, digital STEAM books on StoryWeaver, a platform that engages a readership of 100,000 annually. We also support Agastya International Foundation, Barefoot College, Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement, and Vikram A. Sarabhai Community Science Centre, all of which bring science education to students in underserved communities.
Developing and retaining good teachers is critical to student success, especially within underserved communities. Our grant to Teach for India supports the Fellowship program, a two-year, full-time teaching fellowship in underresourced schools. We also support CARE India, Humana People to People India, and Quest Alliance in their efforts to train and empower educators.
Literacy is the key to socioeconomic mobility. We support organizations working to advance literacy and language development among underserved populations. Our support for Literacy India’s Sampurna Shiksha project brings holistic educational development to thousands of underserved children nationally. We also support Akanksha Foundation, Katha, PlanetRead, and Room to Read India Trust, which work to increase literacy among youth.

Engaging students in creative problem-solving and developing spatial, rhythmic, visual, and kinesthetic awareness through arts, crafts, music, and storytelling.
