My name is Jashandeep Singh and I am a full time Graphic Designer and Web/App developer that works from his home in Punjab, India.
I have always been fond of art and design. You can see some of my work on my personal website at https://www.jdwebservices.com/
When I look around me I see a tremendous amount of potential in our youth that never gets a chance to blossom. Basic opportunities in the digital space are denied to the vast majority of the children because they never get exposure to the digital world from a young age. I wish to change that, one child at a time.
As a result, I have decided to partner with my friend Dony Dahia, the founder of Excellent Computer Centre in Sri Muktsar Sahib, which is my hometown. Dony runs a private computer centre which has 10 computers. In order to bridge the digital divide, I am hoping to raise funds for 10 school going girls to undergo a 4 month course familiarizing them with using a PC, the internet, how to search for information on Google, use MS Office, and converse in basic English. All the students are from Sarkari High Smart School Park in Sri Muktsar Sahib.
We need your help to raise Rs 2,000 per child for the entire 4 month course for each child. That is approximately USD $ 28.30. That is a small amount to introduce a child from small town India to the digital world.
I hope that we succeed in this small endeavour and can repeat this exercise again in 2020.
