With most of the students in rural India being the first generation learners, there is very minimal guidance/no guidance on how to continue their Education and what career opportunities are available for them to pursue. There are many students, especially in rural areas, who are not able to utilize the opportunities in government and private sector. There are equal number of opportunities as the number of people, But there is an exposure divide.
Vidya HelpLine, is a unique solution to bridge this knowledge divide in students and drop outs and help them make leaned career choices rather than ignorant ones.
