RUBARU is the signature event by eVidyaloka that promotes the spirit of Rural-Urban connect. The annual event brings eminent leaders from the industry on the same platform for a larger nation-building cause, along side the future talent.
RUBARU is a culmination of two integral programs that were run simultaneously over the course of last two months, namely Joy of Connecting and National Student Innovation Challenge
Joy of Connecting (JoC): An outreach initiative that connects online for a live interaction between children of rural India and people of urban India. A 60 mins session is carried out across various urban establishments like Corporates, Institutes and Communities, creating awareness about the opportunity to contribute online.
National Student Innovation Challenge (NSIC): Hybrid teams of children from urban and rural schools from across India work together on a challenge based on the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The children collaborate over Skype/Email/WhatsApp, facilitated by a Volunteer Mentor. Winners of the Challenge get to present at the Rubaru - Grand Finale, in Bangalore
