Hyderabad: During the time of Covid-19 lockdown that brought education sector to a standstill, three friends from leading educational institutions came together to launch Vidyakansha, a non-profit organisation aimed at leveraging technology to provide quality education through highly qualified instructors to rural children.

Last year May, the three friends - ISB Hyderabad student, Aishwarya Mishra along with Arushi Verma and Vartika Chaudhary, former students of IIM Bangalore and IIM Ahmedabad respectively, came up with the idea of reaching out to the students in the rural side. And within months, their concept - Vidyakansha spread its roots and expanded its presence in Telangana, Bihar, Uttarakhand, Bengal and Gujarat.
