‘70@70’ programme to focus on accessible and affordable smart education, smart health

Wednesday, 07 October 2020 | PNS | New Delhi

The ‘70@70’ programme, launched on Gandhi Jayanti as part of celebrations of 70th birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, would in the first phase focus on providing accessible and affordable smart education, smart health, smart agriculture and clean energy in the 70 villages that would be adopted.

Launching the programme, Agriculture and Rural Minister Narendra Singh Tomar had extended the Centre’s full support to the project as, he said, it would help people in the villages take advantage of technology and processes.

Tomar said the program would also inspire neighboring villages to move towards becoming self-reliant. 

The initiative of adoption of villages has been undertaken by various organisations like eKisaan foundation, GIBV, and organisations including Jaipur Foot USA, Computer Society of India, Edufront, Friends of MP, India Global, True Tesla Technologies and ATREE.

The core team for this ‘70@70’ programme includes Pramit Maakoday, Kanchan Bannerjee, Jyoti Bhowraskar, Sanjeev Tripathi, Srikanta Bhaskara and Manoj Sisodia.

Maakoday said the objective of this program is to educate, engage, and empower our farmers, along with implementing programs in PPP mode. While eKisaan foundation is a registered organization based in India, the Global Indians for Bharat Vikas (GIBV) is a not-for-profit organization based in Boston, United States and its mission includes establishing a network of volunteers from around the world in organic development of villages and rural ecosystem in India.
