Sankalp Computer Lab
Education Human Welfare Ongoing
To promote digital literacy and minimise the digital divide between urban and rural populations.
Why did we do it ?
Education is the pillar on which one can build a strong future for children. Computer education
in today's world, is a basic and essential requirement for higher education and job opportunities
as well. Fluent use of computers for children/youngsters in rural India continues to be a
challenge due to lack of hands on experience stemming from inaccessibility due to cost, distance
and lack of infrastructure. In order to bridge this gap and translate theoretical computer
knowledge to application of knowledge enabling pursuit of higher goals we are focusing on
providing good computer education opportunities in rural settings.
What did we do ?
We have started a computer lab in Panchlai, Gujarat that provides two courses i.e Basics of
computers and CCC. The curriculum is designed for a period of 3 months but can be altered as per
need of the student. Both the courses cater to the age group between 13-18 years but do have
students who are older and want to reconnect for education or job opportunities. In order to
encourage enrolment, we have designed the lab hours such that they are conducive to school and
college students and also tied up with a local organisation that conducts practical exams and awards
a course completion certificate.
Encouraged by the success of the two courses we offer we are now planning to introduce a course
in Tally as well.
Since inception this project has benefitted nearly 120 students from 16 villages around the centre
thus promoting digital literacy.
