It's Humanity Foundation (IHF) and NERDIZ.com signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and established an official partnership through which they aim to bring the world to school kids who are not privileged enough to see it themselves.

Through this collaboration, IHF and NERDIZ.com will work towards providing virtual reality (VR) classes where students will be taken to virtual field trips to historical places and will be taught on the curriculum contents. This will not only enable them to feel the places, but will also enhance their knowledge regarding the locations which they have never explored before. The organisations look forward towards helping children visualise their educational content, thus elevating their creativity and visualisation skills. This will enable students to have a better understanding of the subject they are learning about.

Through VR education, the collaboration aims to inspire more interactive and immersive learning experience to all the children and improve the quality of education in the country.

The MoU signing event took place at a hotel in Dhaka where over 30 change makers were present from different institutions of the country. Chairman and founder of IHF Md Adnan Hossain, Executive Director of IHF Fatema Tuz Johora, CEO and founder of NERDIZ.com Pradeepta Kumar Saha, Chief Operating Officer of NERDIZ.com Sagar Mazumder were present during the signing ceremony.

It's Humanity Foundation (IHF) is a non-profit organisation dedicated towards diminishing the needless human sufferings by extending opportunities to the underprivileged. NERDIZ.com is an education platform in Bangladesh which explores numerous applications of virtual reality.
