We are consistently offering our support to such socially impactful endeavors that empower youth, particularly girls, with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in today’s dynamically evolving world. Adhigam Bhoomi has been implementing unique programs to benefit the last-mile population, and our collaboration with the organization is aligned with our CSR objective of nurturing a culture of environmental stewardship and sustainability. Pokket will remain at the forefront of extending support to such noble initiatives and making rural India more sustainable in the future.”

Moreover, the collaboration underscores a commitment to sustainability, as reflected in Adhigam Bhoomi’s curriculum, which focuses on imparting skills-based education to students and women across various villages, fostering growth, and Atmanirbharta.

Adhigam Bhoomi, founded by Mukti Gupta, operates under the philosophy ‘Apni Mitti Se Judi Shiksha’ (education rooted in our land) and is dedicated to reconstructing rural India’s educational system. The center integrates skill-based education with sustainable practices to create self-reliant communities.

Furthermore, the initiative strives to establish community centers in villages to enable students to lead local development plans with the support of teachers and stakeholders.

This partnership, a part of the Help Us Help Them (HUHT) initiative, underscores mPokket’s dedication to shaping a holistic learning experience and fostering curiosity and understanding among students preparing for a dynamic future. Thus producing leaders & entrepreneurs who will return to villages, create employment opportunities for the community, and prevent migration from rural to urban areas.
