Impart computer literacy to poor children in India



This project would impart computer literacy to children of juvenile homes from extremely poverty stricken background thereby providing vocational training and improving their employment potential.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Juvenile homes in Mumbai house arguably the most disadvantaged children. Institutionalized for many months, they are often from highly poverty stricken families. Devoid of any family environment, the strategic needs of these children are that their vocational skills are built up and services to this end are delivered within the juvenile home premises. This project would strive to impart computer literacy to 120 children every year.

How will this project solve this problem?

Sahaara delivers quality computer education services to the children in juvenile homes, within the home premises. The main goal of this project is to ensure good quality computer education for educable children in the juvenile homes. The specific objectives are to improve access to computer, to increase computer literacy of the children and to deliver quality computer education.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will ensure that through innovative teaching methodologies employed and one to one individualized attention given to the children, there is an improvement in the grades of the 120 children attending and completing the basic computer course.
