This project will give 4120 former street children access to computers and the internet so that they can connect with their teachers, access quality online learning content and learn more about the world. Covid-19 has caused schools to shut across the country. Enabling strong digital infrastructure in our residential care facilities will ensure that our children don't miss out on their right to learn.
Covid-19 forced school closures across the world, including India. Our 4120 children, who come from highly underprivileged backgrounds and live in our care-centred residential homes, could not go to school anymore. Our homes do not have computers, high-speed internet or video-conferencing infrastructure - all of which have now become necessary for a child's education. Our 4120 children want to engage with their teachers, access information and stay connected, but don't have the means to do so.
This project will provide computers, high-speed internet, online learning courses and video-conferencing capabilities to 4120 former street children. Our children will be trained to use computers and access the internet. Our children will be able to continue their education, learn new things and stay connected with their teachers and friends.
The project will enable digital literacy for thousands of former street children allowing them to access more job opportunities and knowledge. The project will potentially allow our children to escape a lifetime of poverty and misery by equipping them with 21st century skills and competencies.
