London-based business conglomerate, AdiGroup in association with SV Group initiated a new chapter in the Education segment by launching Ed4All, a born digital Formal Education platform, with singular focus – eliminate education inequalities by powering every individual with formal education.
As a first step the company is set to bridge educational inequalities in K12 by introducing BLEAP®, a born-digital formal school education product supported by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning with Content, Delivery and Device packaged together, known as School-in-a-Box, at extremely low cost. BLEAP® is powered by Microsoft®, and delivered on Flipkart and Jio platforms. This gives BLEAP® technological superiority and unparalleled reach to small-town India, thus serving aspirants across the nook-and-corner of the country.
Sanjay Viswanathan, Chairman AdiGroup and Co-Founder, Ed4All, said, “This is a new and exciting chapter in the journey of Education – the birth of Ed4All. I loved the name Ed4All because it meant Education for All, the most crucial element of a living human’s life that makes them empowered. No one should be called uneducated and that’s our mission.”
“Core of our belief with education is in levelling the field for everyone. Ed4All is about every individual prospering through formal education. The Internet is the most powerful equalizer, and we see it as our purpose to leverage it, and with the power of AI make formal education available to as many people as possible.
“We want to ensure that no matter who you are or where you are or how basic or advanced the device you have…Ed4All serves you with formal education. Educational institutions play a key role in this mission and I am proud to partner with SV Group, one of the hidden gems in the Indian education segment reputed for producing great quality students with world class teachers based on CBSE and State Board curriculum – for over Six Decades.
“While India’s literacy rate has steadily increased from 18% in 1951 to 77.7% presently, Digital can foster this growth by enabling current students across social strata and those who could not pursue education earlier.
“We see huge opportunity to dramatically improve way Education is delivered with technology being placed in the hands of Teachers and Students. Our core customer is that factory worker in L&T, or Uber/Ola driver or waitress in Taj Hotels in Rajkot or Coimbatore or Jakarta or Hanoi, who aspires to give his or her children the foundation to succeed in life through Education.
“That is why we chose to deliver BLEAP® to students in small-town India through reach of Flipkart and Jio platforms. We welcome the innovative participation of Corporates, Educationists, Business leaders, and world class Partners, so we can further strengthen and accelerate this Initiative. And as a result of all this, improve the lives of as many people as we can,” Viswanathan added.
