  • School set to provide teaching and after-school educational support for more than 300 children

Cadence Design Systems (India) Pvt. Ltd., a fully owned subsidiary of Cadence Design Systems, Inc., today announced that it has partnered with Vidya & Child and completed the construction of a school for underprivileged children in Noida. The school construction was funded by Cadence, which worked closely with Vidya & Child, a non-government organization (NGO), to ensure the building was architected to the highest standards.

The school has been fully operational since February 2023 and provides an encouraging learning environment for more than 300 students from the surrounding area of Khoda Village (Noida, Uttar Pradesh). Most of the students are first-generation learners whose parents are daily wage earners from underserved areas of the local community. The school caters to students from nursery to eighth standard, after which students are enrolled in mainstream schools in the locality. After the students join mainstream schools, they continue to attend Vidya & Child School for additional educational support and extra-curricular activities.

The new school features modern and environmentally friendly amenities, including electricity backup through solar energy, rainwater harvesting, a dedicated computer lab, and a STEM lab. In addition to monetary and advisory support for the construction, Cadence also provided laptops to the school’s STEM lab in order to encourage students to pursue careers in technology.

Cadence has been a long-standing Vidya & Child partner for the past 23 years, supporting several of its after-school centers. A notable highlight of this collaboration is the Vidya & Child center in Barola, Noida, which has benefitted 400 students. Additionally, 25 students from the Barola center have joined the Cadence Scholarship Program, which has provided higher education scholarship funding and mentorship support.

“Empowering underprivileged children with the knowledge and skills needed to achieve their full potential is a major focus area for Cadence’s CSR activities. We are proud to have helped build this school for the betterment of these children, and in particular, providing a conducive environment for girls to study STEM. The school paves the way for educational opportunities that may not have otherwise existed,” said Jaswinder Ahuja, corporate VP and India managing director, Cadence. “This latest collaboration with Vidya & Child furthers our commitment to cultivating local talent, encouraging girls to study and making an impact in our local communities.”

Supriya Akhaury, founder trustee and director of Vidya & Child said, “Vidya & Child was started with the belief that every child needs access to good-quality, holistic education that allows them to strive for opportunities equally in today’s world. Over the years, Cadence has provided Vidya & Child with both financial and advisory support, which has helped educate more than 2,000 children, 400 of whom have completed schooling with Vidya & Child and are now either in college or have joined the workforce. By establishing this new school with Cadence, we’re jointly creating a way for local children to obtain a competitive skill set that can prepare them for more advanced schooling later in life and fuel inspiration for future career paths.”
