Edukemy partners Sonu Sood’s Charity Foundation to help economically weaker section students
SSC conducts the examination to recruit staff for various Group B and C positions in multiple ministries, departments, and organizations under the Government of India.
“Every year lakhs of students from the economically weaker section cannot qualify for these exams due to a lack of proper coaching. We want to make a social impact by providing free coaching and mentorship support and holistic personality development. We aim to work for a more significant cause of nation-building through youth empowerment,” said Chandrahas Panigrahi, co-founder of Edukemy.
Founded by Chandrahas Panigrahi, Shabbir A Bashir, and Deb Tripathi in 2020, Edukemy has created an evaluation model for non-subjective and subjective competitive exams. The edtech firm said it wants to scale the learning experience by offering an insightful environment, focusing on live classes, handwritten notes, and an interactive platform.
Sood Charity Foundation helps the underprivileged by providing them access to better quality education, career opportunities, and healthcare. At present, Edukemy is providing a 20% discount to EWS candidates on courses for the UPSC exams while the foundation courses are free for SSC examinations.
“The foundation was started with the purpose of helping the needy across segments covering education, medical, healthcare, career opportunities. Our diligent focus is to empower the underprivileged to gain access to the best facilities and resources,” Sonu Sood said in a statement. The scholarships would cover six months of end-to-end preparation with more than 300 live classes.
