Digital literacy to empower urban slum children

by Humana People to People India
Vetted

Summary

The project aims to purchase 20 new computers to re equip 2 computer training centers in Malviya Nagar & Jagatpura, Jaipur, which provide computer based education to primary & middle school children from socially and economically backward migrant families from some of Jaipur's urban slums. It also provides computer skills training to youth to increase their employability. This we believe can help them live a life of dignity & confidence and help arrest the problem of unemployment in our country.

Challenge

The existing computers at the facility have become too old and slow, thus making it impossible for students to avail their facilities and making it difficult to conduct regular classes on computer basics and use of Internet and email. The computer learning center also serves as a skills training lab for several youth of the area to get basic and advance computer skills to increase their employability. The defunct computers with their faulty machinery have also hindered their skill development.

Solution

Re-installation of a computer lab will provide the means to offer vocational training, and a stronger education through access to the internet. Through these computer learning centers in Jaipur we can: A). Provide Computer based skills training to close the digital divide in the community and help youth, in finding jobs. B). Augment learning capacities of children by persistent access to the web. C) Train the teachers at the centers by using computer instruction modules.

Long-Term Impact

We hope to provide children from disadvantaged background an opportunity to benefit from the technological tools available. The potential long term impacts are: Improved learning experience for students leading to improved performance, accruing computer education, enhanced job prospects and prospective employment based on skills learnt at the centers. The aim is to create digitally savvy, confident young individuals who have access to computer literacy & other broader learning opportunities.
