ILSC & Edvisor fund program for Indian women

ILSC Education Group has teamed up with online booking platform Edvisor to launch a new Corporate Social Responsibility partnership aimed at funding scholarships for disadvantaged women in India.

The two organisations hope to raise awareness and money for ILSC’s existing Learn to Earn program, which the global educator has been running since 2010 in a bid to increase economic opportunities for women and girls.

“We believe that education should be accessible to everyone regardless of their gender or class”

From June through August 2019, for every ILSC & Greystone College application processed through Edvisor and Book & Learn platforms, Edvisor will donate $1 to the Learn to Earn program on behalf of agents.

“At Edvisor we believe that education should be accessible to everyone regardless of their gender or class,” Maria Izvyekova, Edvisor’s global sales director said. “This is why the Learn to Earn initiative at ILSC really resonated with us.”

The Edvisor initiative will run in simultaneously with ILSC’s #ILSCGIVES campaign, which was launched in 2018. This effectively doubles the efforts in helping create transformative changes in the lives of students, according to the educator.

In 2017, the language educator was the charitable endeavour prize at the Women in International Education’s inaugural awards.

“Through sponsorship contributions we are able to offer language education and job skills training to Indian women, transforming their lives forever,” added Chris Nolan ILSC’s VP of sales & marketing.

In the past nine years, the Learn to Earn Program has enrolled more than 100 students and 15 classes have graduated thanks to sponsorship.
