There is no such industry which works without computers in modern times. Imagine in this context, what it means for the person who has never used a computer- the possibility of finding work? At Humana's Academy for Working Children, we provide access to computer from an early age to children. We need to re equip 2 computer training centres in Jaipur, Rajasthan. Help us in making both children and youth gain skills & confidence to help arrest the problem of unemployment in our country.
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.
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). Augment learning capacities of children by persistent access to the web B). .Provide Computer based skills training to close the digital divide in the community and help youth, in finding jobs. C) Train the teachers at the centers by using computer instruction modules.
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.
