Bringing Smiles
Sustaining Happiness

By exposing children to today’s disruptive technologies – particularly children for whom technology is either a luxury or non-existent – Brillio can nurture the imaginations of young people and democratize the ideas of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Social Responsibility 

Brillio is impacting the communities we touch by helping underprivileged children develop conceptual understanding of and acquire skills related to technology which will increase their future opportunities. We aim to enable over 100,000 young minds globally to thrive in a new digital economy through e-learning projects, innovation workshops, science experiments, interactive self-learning initiatives and productive skill-sharing.

The Business of Brillio is Doing Well by Doing Good.

The Impact

Every Friday is Volunteering Day
Impact multiplies when employees get involved

Bringing Smiles has had more significant impact because it is employee-centric. Volunteering is encouraged and recognized by Brillio and we take a structured approach to maintaining our employees’ long-term engagement. In a recent employee survey, CSR was amongst the top three reasons that our people choose to work at Brillio.
