As many of you might be aware, IIT Bombay is moving to complete an online semester for Fall 2020-21 because of the Covid-19. And as it moves online, there are many students who don't have proper resources such as laptops or a broadband connection that would allow them to study from their homes.
IIT Bombay Director Dr. Subhasis Chaudhuri has made an urgent appeal for funds to help procure 1,000 laptops and associated broadband connections for students in need of help. It is estimated that Rs. 47000 or approx £500 are required for 1 student (laptop and broadband connection). We plan to raise enough to support at least 10 students.
IITBAA London Chapter, supported by Dean Alumni and Corporate Relations IIT Bombay, has partnered with IIT Alumni Association UK for raising funds for the same. IIT AA UK is a registered charity in the UK for helping out Alumni from all IITs based in the UK.
As a registered charity, donations made through IIT AA UK allows you to get a tax deduction for the money donated. In addition, you can choose your donation to be supplemented through the Gift Aid program for residents of the UK.
Thank you for your contribution.
