“This partnership strengthens efforts in content localisation as per the latest National Education Policy with support from the state governments and public schools to democratize access to high-quality learning resources," it said.

The focus of the partnership, the statement said, will be on successfully implementing a personalised maths learning programme for 100,000 learners in Punjab. SBI Foundation and SBI Funds Management Pvt Ltd are exclusively providing funding support for maths content localisation in Punjabi and teacher training programs consisting of over 5,000 teachers across 3,000 schools in Punjab.

“With the SBI Foundation’s support, Khan Academy and the government of Punjab will create new maths lessons consisting of videos, articles and practice exercises in Punjabi aiming at all learners in Punjab’s public schools. This content will also be available on Khan Academy’s platform for free for all students," it said.
