This project aims to improve the comuputer literacy among the unskilled , school and college drop out girls in the marginalized rural and semi urban areas of faisalabad and muzaffargarh which is alarmingly low (1 % approx) in 70% areas of the country.
AWARD wishes to make the girls from marginalized strata , computer literate to help themselves adding up into the national workforce.The project has alot potential to tranform the lives of the young girls and will be helpful to uplift them socially and economicaly, to create better livlihood options in the era of technology. Through the established Computer training center , so far 120 girls have completed their certification and now aim to look for betteropportunities.
AWARD also aim to open up more computer literacy centers in the rural areas of Punjab to make digital literacy common among the rural communites. This could only be possible if the technology will be exposed to the community.
Unfortunately, the project hasnt garnered the desired donations so far in the recent quarters, the amount collected this far is not sufficient to initate new digital learning centers in the areas. However through some fundraising from other sources, AWARD Pakistan has managed to initiate its first Computer Literacy Center in Faisalabad and it has started working to improve the skill based learning among the poor marginalized girls in District Faisalabad.
According to Nida , one of the student at the center " Computer literacy is a must to survive in todays time, this training has opened up many door for me"
We request all our supporters to support this project and help women learn computer literacy for better future.
