New Delhi, 17 November 2021: Toppr, India’s leading Edtech platform has partnered with the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to educate underprivileged students. The collaboration is a part of Toppr’s corporate social responsibility program called Asha.

Speaking on the initiative, Zishaan Hayath, CEO, Toppr, said, “The Covid-19 pandemic had widened the gap between students of the privileged and underprivileged families. Toppr Asha was conceptualized to democratize education by making it accessible to underprivileged students and providing them access to best-in-class learning material from Toppr. We are proud to have partnered with NDMC to achieve our objective and hope to contribute towards the academic excellence of these students.”
RP Sati, Director (Education), NDMC, said, “NDMC has collaborated with Toppr to empower under-served children by providing access to top-quality digital education. Through this association, NDMC aims to support students from low-income families studying at NDMC Schools with the help of Toppr Asha. Approximately 2000 NDMC/ Navyug students are enrolled with Toppr to improve their academic performance. This reinforces the commitment of NDMC to make school education more inclusive and accessible to all through the intervention of information technology. Toppr will offer support to students for the board exams and competitive exam preparation using the best of technology and pedagogy.
