      Cheekotel Foundation is a corporate social responsibility trust which acts as a funding and operating agency for social ventures which help take the benefits of digital technologies to the bottom of pyramid markets. In these markets, it is often observed that because of a combination of poor paying power and market failure, large segments of our society are not able to access the benefits of digital technologies in areas like healthcare and education. As a result, their ability to move up the economic ladder is significantly impacted.
