Rok often engages in acts of altruism, particularly when it comes to education. As one of our fundamental goals, we work to make education more accessible to those in need. This was particularly challenging amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw many families lose their livelihoods and had their lives put on hold
One such case was that of GShrinidhi an extremely promising student from an underprivileged community in Chennal. Amids the pandemic,both her parents had been laid off and the little income that came into her household was used for the family's basic needs. As a result, Shrinidhis education became unaffordable to the family. This was especially concerning, as she needed to pay her fees to give her final exams and formally complete her education
When her situation was brought to our notice, Rok implemented a field team to gauge her needs, connect with her school and determine how much funding was required for Shrinidhi to complele her 10th grade Education. Then, using the Rok platform to raise funds, we successfully generated enough donations to ensure Shrinidhi was able to complete her examinations.
