Birla Brainiacs recently collaborated with Being Human – The Salman Khan Foundation. Underprivileged children do not have the opportunity to live a good life. Although, India is the seventh-largest country for rapidly increasing its economy across the globe. Youngsters do not have the privilege of a basic standard of living and must endure some of the world’s most unfavourable living conditions. Because of their parents’ and family members’ financial obligations, these children are powerless and face various issues such as illiteracy, maltreatment, starvation, and more.
Poverty difficulties cause youngsters to miss out on life possibilities that would otherwise allow them to blossom into successful and unconstrained adults. It has become critical to establish an active support system that aims to improve the lives of millions of innocent children who have been fighting to live an everyday existence. It’s time we talk openly about these issues and offer them the help they need.

Being Human X Birla Brainiacs
Due to the outbreak, underprivileged children had to face the worst of education due to a lack of access to technology and the excessive prices involved. Birla Brainiacs stepped up under the capable leadership of Yashovardhan Birla and Nirvaan Birla, both of whom are firm believers in the value of education. They collaborated with Being Human to provide much-needed tabs to children in an NGO in Pimpri, Pune, to ensure their learning progresses smoothly.
On November 22, 2021, Birla Brainiacs and The Salman Khan Foundation collaborated to provide light to underprivileged students in tribal school Sewadham Trust Tribal Residential School in Malegaon from 1st to 12th grade. With around a hundred youngsters benefiting from homeschooling courses for a year.
Nirvaan Birla and Yashovardhan Birla, founders of the NGO in Pune, personally distributed 50 devices to keep the children interested.
They gave free tablets to roughly fifty pupils to ensure that the underprivileged could benefit from their online homeschooling program. Birla Brainiacs‘ mission is to provide an opportunity for young people to excel in the digital age, regardless of their background or lifestyle.
Speaking about the cause, Nirvaan Birla, Director of Birla Brainiacs, stated, “It is not only about technology or education; it is about sharing knowledge and information, forming learning communities, and cultivating a caring culture. It is all about introducing 21st-century learning skills to individuals in need. It is all about bridging gaps and constructing bridges.”
“Striving to assist in bridging the gap between the impoverished and the upper strata of our society is the need of the hour,” stated Yash Birla, Chairman of Birla Brainiacs. The integration of technology and education has immense promise and making this vision a reality for our country’s grassroots levels will result in a dramatic breakthrough in student accomplishment. “Our goal is to make every kid a digital citizen.”
The Yash Birla Group, one of India’s leading industrial conglomerate firms noted for its CSR activities, has been heavily active in moulding the future of the education system. Going above and beyond, the Group established Matri Seva Sadan, a Charitable Trust that provides educational and medical assistance to the impoverished and vulnerable. The cause advances social welfare by developing basic educational and medical facilities for individuals in need.

Why do Birla Brainiacs offer free homeschooling to underprivileged kids?
Birla Brainiacs is offering free homeschooling to underprivileged kids because they believe that learning won’t stop no matter what, every child is entitled to the right to education.

We are committed to assisting children in becoming the kindest, most capable, and most resilient versions of themselves. Building a future-ready generation across all social strata has been our vision. ‘Birla Brainiacs’, in collaboration with Being Human and the Birla Open Minds Group of schools has consistently strived to realize this dream of a country where everyone has the opportunity to receive a uniform education.
