Sangamam project aims to replicate the model that Asha Chennai has developed working with primary schools in Chennai area. Broadly the project has following objectives:
• Teaching computer science.
• Teaching Maths, Science, English and other subjects using computers

Though initial focus will be on teaching computer science, the hope is that the teachers will also start mapping online teaching content UP state board curriculum. Asha Chennai has done similar thing, where they have mapped 3rd party teaching content to Tamil Nadu curriculum and provided access to content through their Kanani software. They will now guide the Sangamam team on how to map content in Hindi language with UP state board curriculam. Once mapped this content will be made available to the government teachers and other schools in this area as well.
The project aims to introduce computer education and computer aided curriculum in U.P government school.
