Congrats to our Teaching Resource Labs team for their recent award from Cisco!
“At Cisco, we identify and invest in early stage, scalable technology solutions that address some of the world’s most significant societal and environmental issues. Our partnerships with nonprofit and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) accelerate global problem solving, creating new and better opportunities for people through digitization and technology.
As part of CARE’s Scale X Design Accelerator, we advanced our efforts and invested in one such idea, awarding US$50,000 to CARE India’s Teaching Resource Labs (TRL).

Like the Cisco Networking Academy, which trains students and instructors in networking technology around the world, TRL builds teachers’ capacities in STEM, enabling them to provide students with engaging, hands-on learning.
In India, where a lack of resources and the gender gap in the IT field make it difficult for women to reach their full potential, a program like TRL can help transform lives and the country’s economy.
CARE, a Cisco community partner, works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty, and achieve social justice through various investments and programs. Their Scale X Design Accelerator supports teams to design, test, iterate and scale ideas; groups receive funding, skills, and mentoring to turn their concepts into scaling, impactful solutions.”
