Google gives Bharti Foundation $5 mn to educate rural kids

Google has announced that it will donate $5 million to Bharti Foundation, the philanthropic unit of Bharti Enterprises. The money will support 50 schools in rural areas of Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh and will be used to set up new schools and upgrade existing schools.

The Bharti Foundation already provides education to children through 236 schools in villages and will be building 15 more primary schools and four senior secondary schools this year. This is not the first time that the global search giant, whose motto is “Don’t be evil”, has give grants and scholarships. Google has given grants to students in the US and other countries as well and is also involved in vaccination and HIV prevention programmes in Africa.

The money that has been given by Google at this time will help educate 15,000 school aged children in India. Google’s grant to Bharti Foundation is part of its global philanthropic programme. Google has given more than $145 million to non-profit and academic institutions in 2010. It has given $184 million in total, including the funds given by Google Grants, Google.org technology projects and product support for non-profit organisations.
