So why is it that we really do what we do?
Our tagline says “A 21st Century Education. For Every Child.”
When we say “Every Child”, we really do mean every child.
Learning Yogi’s ultimate vision is a world in which each and every child gets access to a high-quality education – regardless of the circumstances of his or her birth.
While our Atlas Mission game-based learning platform will be used by children in both developed and developing countries, and across different socio-economic groups, what originally motivated us to start Learning Yogi is our burning desire to help underprivileged children living in developing countries to get access to educational opportunities that will help them escape the vicious cycle of poverty that their families have been trapped in for generations.
Because of this, we have started a non-profit sister organization called the Learning Yogi Foundation, which will install the Atlas Mission platform in low-cost Android tablets and distribute these tablets to low-income communities in India, China and in countries in Africa, South America and South-East Asia.
The Learning Yogi Foundation will partner with NGOs and microfinance institutions in these countries to distribute these tablets and to provide its customers with the ability to make low monthly installment payments in order to help them finance the cost of the tablets.
For those parents in these low-income communities who can’t afford to make even these low monthly installment payments, the Foundation will collect philanthropic donations and use those donations to provide subsidized (and sometimes, free) tablets to them.
Here are some frequently asked questions for donors who are considering a contribution to the Foundation:
What exactly will my donation be used for?
By making a donation to the Learning Yogi Foundation, you can ensure that some of the poorest children in the world are able to receive a quality education. Your donation will be used to subsidize the cost of Learning Yogi’s tablets for these children.
How much should I donate?
While this is obviously completely up to you, the cost of each Learning Yogi tablet is $100. So, we would appreciate a donation of at least $100. If you’re able to donate at least $500 (i.e. the cost of 5 tablets), we will include your name in our list of Featured Donors.
Who should I send my donation to?
Your donation should be made to the non-profit Learning Yogi Foundation.
Is my donation tax exempt?
Learning Yogi Foundation’s application for tax exemption under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act is currently pending with the Government of India. Therefore, donations are currently not tax exempt.
You shall nevertheless receive a receipt from us within 7 business days from the day that we receive your donation.
