Nihar Shanti Pathshala Funwala has announced ‘Padhai Par Lockdown Nahi’- an initiative that ensures students can keep learning English even at home through the ‘Phone Uthao India ko Padhao’ programme that was launched last year. Free virtual classes are available for the next two months for grades 6-10 through the Paathshala Funwala app on Google Playstore.


Commenting on these initiatives, Koshy George, Chief Marketing Officer, Marico Limited said: “Nihar Shanti Amla has always believed that education is the foundation of nation’s growth. COVID-19 pandemic has posed serious challenges to continuity of learning. We understand this and to ensure that learning doesn’t stop even during the lockdown, we have launched Padhai Par Lockdown Nahi campaign. This programme gives an opportunity to urban adults sitting at home to teach spoken English to a rural child who can access it anytime, anywhere through a simple, convenient phone based intervention. In addition, the partnership with AAS Vidyalaya helps make all other subjects available free on our app for 2 months. It covers 6th-10th grade curriculum designed as per CBSE, UP State Board and NOIS board. Together we all can make a difference to these children’s lives and strive towards building a confident, educated young India.”


Added Russell Barrett, CCO & Managing Partner, BBH India: “Nihar Shanti Amla has been built on the promise of Look good, Do good. And for years now the brand has dedicated itself to doing good by educating India’s underprivileged children through various on- ground and digital initiatives. During these exceptional times, exceptional brands reinforce their worth by their actions and Nihar Shanti Amla has dedicated itself to ensuring there is no lockdown on learning. We’ve used technology to give children in the remote interiors of India the same privileges that our own children enjoy during this time through the Phone Uthao India Ko Padhao programme. We’re so proud to partner Marico in this initiative and to ensure the next generation of India doesn’t stop their onward march to a better future.”
