The sex workers are desperate for educational opportunities and a chance for better life for their children. They do not want their children to know about the flesh trade and also wish to minimize the risk of their contracting HIV/AIDS. Established computer institutes will not admit these children because of their birth status and certificate. The pilot project will be in Chennai, India and will expand to Hyderabad, Bangalore, Mumbai, Kolkata and New Delhi.
ASSET will operate computer institutes with Internet access with equipment and software donated by corporate donors. Computer-Based Literacy programs will be offered in regional languages.
It will initially serve 20 children growing to 40. With the Mobile Computer Classroom, we will serve 200 children. It will create excitement among children living in the slums and provide skills for gainful employment.
