There is a growing demand for computer education and information technology among the poor urban and rural communities including communities around our Udayan Care's residential homes for orphaned children.

The Census of India 2011 projects that the working age group will constitute up to 64% of India's population by 2021. The bulk of this increase is likely to be in the younger age group of 20-35 years. In order to tap the unlimited potential of this large youth population and to enhance their employability quotient technology play a major role.Therefore, there is an urgent need to address the issue by maximizing the employment rates for better standards of living.
