Taking Steps to Bolster Education with Technology
E-learning "on the go"
Aasraa’s mission is to provide children an education that they deserve; one that empowers them. Our Wings program, providing homework and tutorial support to our mainstreamed children as well as children from government schools, is a perfect reflection of this idea.
Set on this mission to provide the best and latest for our children, we recently adapted the concept of a Mobile Computer Lab to our specific needs. Sponsored by the Hans Foundation; our Mobile Computer Lab (MCL) was launched on October 11th. A 26 seater bus has been redesigned to be a computer lab for 20 students, accommodating 2 students per terminal. Fitted with 10 computer terminals, power back up and Internet connectivity, this bus is the start of a revolution in Computer Education across Uttarakhand.
We are dedicated to provide high quality computer education to all children reached out through the MCL. Our MCL reaches 160 children per day, at various schools across Dehradun. Children develop the necessary IT skills and also get the opportunity to explore and read about different topics that fascinate them. Computer aided learning is a powerful tool for students and we firmly believe that our children from the streets and slums should have access to this.
Currently, Aasraa’s Mobile Computer Lab is scheduled to conduct classes at five different schools. These are CNI Girls Inter College, Sneha Doon Academy, GIC Dobhalwala, Mangala Devi Inter College and Summer Valley After School program.
We extend our heatrfelt gratitude to all our donors and supporters for their constant encouragement !
