When we look at the India skill report, we find that the major jobs that are available are in the tertiary sector. Getting them ready for such jobs requires them to be efficient at the use of computers.
However, unfortunately, our government schools lack processes that can develop such skills in the current crop of students. In order to do this, the government schools of Bhuwari and Seuva in the Rajgarh block in Churu, Rajasthan have come up with a unique solution. They are trying to arrange for technical literacy sessions with various resource persons. For this, they are tying up with local resource persons who take these sessions for a fee. They are also asking the local E-mitra to come and build capacity
Another major problem that plagues such an arrangement is the lack of concrete processes that help assess the skill buildup after such sessions. How can we create concrete products based on these skills, which can cement their proficiency.
To solve this, the schools are trying to create a magazine which is purely designed by these kids. They have formed an Editorial board and have appointed language teachers as the head editors.
Please help us in trying to cover the logistical cost of workshops and the printing of the magazine. The money collected from this fundraiser would go into covering the costs of the resource persons taking these tech literacy sessions and covering parts of the cost of the magazine.
Lets us help these kids develop technological proficiency and showcase their village to us.
