In 2020 when Incture decided to consolidate two office spaces into a single cohesive unit, the organization was left with a significant number of unused desktops and computer peripherals. The most obvious option was to find out a way to recycle these responsibly. However, that’s when one of our valiant volunteers Sukshitha Rayanagoudar came forward.
Sukshitha’s immediate and extended family has been running a school in the education hub of North Karnataka- Dharwad. Shri Channa Keshav Higher Secondary School caters to primary and secondary school up to grade 10.
Their primary goal is to educate the local children of underprivileged backgrounds and provide a holistic education of subjects including yoga and meditation. They also host extracurriculars and inter-school competitions. With an undeterred enthusiasm, she with other Incture volunteers took all of the redundant desktops, and computer accessories, and set them all up in their school in Dharwad.
During the stretch of the pandemic, Sukshitha and the school have managed to shift towards online education with close to zero fees. Inchara’s donation of desktops and laptops to their education center for students to have access to technology and Wi-Fi. Sukshitha’s request for technology played a huge role in defining Inchara’s vision to ensure education sustainability.
