Challenge

Some of the students, the administration and the office staff working at Isha Vidhya, as well as the school coordinators are using old computers donated long ago. The school Computer Labs also need desktops. Often, time is wasted in computer backups (to avoid data loss because of disk failures), and re-work (sometimes data is lost because of computer failure).

Solution

The old computers used by the computer labs, admin. and office staff, as well as the school coordinators will be replaced by new computers. Students as well as staff will have access to quality computer infrastructure that will enable the students to learn faster and better, and the staff to perform their job duties effectively.

Long-Term Impact

As the students are able to learn faster and better, and staff able to perform their job duties better, the effectiveness of our program increases, which in turn betters the quality of our interventions. Time wasted in unnecessary backups and rework is eliminated, thus used in more productive work, which again increases the effectiveness and quality of our delivery.
