Bridging the Digital divide among the Under-served

Ask for an update


A lot of people talk about the digital knowledge gap between rural and urban areas, and to bridge that gap, we came up with a thought of offering computer literacy programs as a service to schools that are already successfully engaging with communities but do not have the assets, and resource capabilities to produce an effective digital literacy program.

We aim to combat one of the troubling features of education inequality by providing technological access for underprivileged children. Thus, we are looking at promoting computer literacy through self-learning videos.

The model followed by CS provides an ecosystem for schools, NGOs and SHGs partners by providing them with
2nd hand hardware, maintenance of computer systems, and self-learning videos for delivering computer education in 7 regional languages, including Hindi and English. The action plan includes the following:
-Identifying and evaluating a school
-Training the trainers
-Arranging for computer hardware
-Launching Computer Classes
-Lifetime maintenance support for hardware and software
-Assessment Support
-Module wise certification

The impact so far is enlisted below:
– 36000+ students trained in computer usage
– 15000+ students certified
– Content created in 7 languages Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali, and Oriya
– 12 states Delhi, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Bihar, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Assam, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu
– 220+centers
– 800+ teachers to train students using the Computer Shiksha content
– Centers include schools, supplementary schools, self-help groups for women, juvenile homes
