Computer literacy and English language training can make a big difference to employment seeking rural girls. Computers can transform their lives by ending their marginalizing. It is our dream to provide these young girls with free Basic Computer Training with English language training which will be instrumental in furthering their chances of finding dignified jobs. It will make them a part of the mainstream global youth along with the feeling of empowerment.
There is a huge demand for computer training from underprivileged young girls from slums as they feel this can improve their chances in finding respectable jobs but ever present financial constraints and lack of low cost computer training modules keep them away from availing the benefits of computer literacy. Not being able to read and write English is also a deterrent in learning computers.
To help these girls find better paying jobs and to help them live a life of dignity, our project will provide computer training to 30 interested young girls ( per year ) in Microsoft word, Excel, Paint, Internet browsing etc with English language training. Later on training in Data Entry and Accounting will be provided to those showing promise. At the end of the course 10 toppers will receive a low cost tablet PC (AAKASH a.k.a Ubislate 7+) so that they can continue learning from their home
This Programme will provide girls with useful, relevant and quality computer training which will help them in finding better paying respectable jobs in the fields of Data Entry, Accounting, Retail or as office assistants and security guards in multinationals. This we believe can help them live a life of dignity and confidence and also help arrest the problem of under-employment in our country.
