Hello everyone! My name is Sparsh Mishra and I am a student at Indus International School, Pune. I founded Road2Code
in February 2022, a project aimed at providing access to coding education by creating and disseminating accessible and culturally-relevant programming education, and breaking down complex concepts in Python for an audience lacking access to infrastructure and knowledge sources.
I developed a unique, open-access, Hindi-language Python coding course for beginners in March 2022, which included the following titles: The Fundamentals - Introduction to Python, The Fundamentals - Installing Python, The Fundamentals - The Basics of Scripting, Next Steps in Python, and Flow Control in Python. They can be viewed here:
However, over the course of delivering these courses, I realized that several students from underserved communities do not have the basic resources to gain experiential learning. Therefore I hope to raise funds and donate 2 laptops to Hamari Phahchan for the benefit of students interested in learning ICT skills and the fundamentals of Python. The two laptops are two HP Chromebooks and are in the price range of 15-20 thousand each. Once the funds are raised, the laptops will be purchased and delivered to the NGO office in New Delhi in the run-up to the workshop component of the project.
