The Digital Booster program is a learning initiative to teach Mathematics using Khan Academy in Hindi. Our foundation sets up and runs computer labs in charitable government aided schools to teach Mathematics.

Should students use Digital Booster labs near home or labs based in their schools?

Students can go to the nearest lab, irrespective of their school. Lab hours are from 6am to 10pm every day of the week, year round. Students are welcome to visit the lab during a time that fits their schedule.

If I have a mobile phone/tablet at home, should I still go into the lab?

We encourage visiting the lab when possible. Labs provide a learning environment, reliable internet connection, and help from trained lab volunteers.

Can my school be part of the digital booster program?

We invite applications from charitable government aided schools in UP with at least 1,000 students. If your school meets the criterion, please contact us at FFE@MAQSoftware.com.

Do you pay volunteers?

Volunteers are vital to the success of our students. We pay a stipend (honorarium) to cover their education and living expenses.

As a teacher, how would the program benefit my students?

Our program reinforces classroom studies and provides additional lessons that are proven to improve the cognitive skills of students.


Why do you focus on eye care initiatives?

India has some of the highest incidences of blindness in the world. So often, blindness is preventable. We partner with charitable eyecare centers to ensure communities have access to resources that can proactively prevent their loss of vision.


Why do you focus on LGP crematoriums?

Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) is affordable and greener fuel that is available even in remote locations. It is the best alternative to other energy sources. The updated crematorium design enables an easy transition once the CNG pipeline is laid and made available.

Can you help me set up an LGP-based crematorium in my community?

We’re happy to help! Please reach out to FFE@MAQSoftware.com
