Proposed Project Description

The use of Computer has now become a necessity for all students. Through the use of computer students can get all the information they need instantly which helps them in their studies. This is especially important for rural area as there are not many people around to help students.    

“Connecting girls to the digital world” (Computer literacy) is not an innovation for developed society, but it is for rural village girls. We need not to explain more here about “Importance of learning to use computers”. Now days using computer is normal and essential in day to day study for students. 

Although this is true, it is a fact that boys and girls in rural area do not get to see or use computers. Still it is very surprising for them to use computers.

We want to expose these rural children to a new dimension of knowledge by teaching them how to use computers.

We intend to start computer literacy education classes in the villages. Girls will learn to use computers for their study and other needs of life.  They need to learn basic computer use and how to access the internet, sending email etc

If we can install computers in a village, can conduct Daily 2 hrs class for a girl. And can be 3 batches per day. If we can install 10 computers in a village,  can educate 30 girls daily. This can be two months program (100 hrs). like this  Can educate 5 batches in a year, 150 girls from a village. May be some boys in small village.   If we can cover 8 villages at a time, installing  80 computers,  can educate  1200 girls in a year.

We can work in 8 villages at a time with 80 computers(10 computers per village) .A instructor will be appointed to guide the girls-students at each village.

We will monitor day to day operations and will help for any difficulty at village level.

  • Same units can be shifted to other 8 villages. And 2400 girls will be educated in another 2 years. Such practice will continue for more years.
  • We will charge some nominal fees to the girls, so after 2 years we can run the project on our own funds.
  • We have to install a invertor also with computer, the electricity power cut is 6hrs and more daily. Power fluctuation also is regular. So invertor is must.
  • A printer also will be made available at each village.  So the students can get print outs of  any information of their use / study etc. 
  • We will involve local Gram Panchayat leaders and group of parents to run the class without any disturbance.

Salient Features

  1. All girls (12 to 18) will be computer friendly, it will be great achievement.
  2. This intervention can open the doors towards acquiring knowledge and information, for the girls, at present it's blocked for them, as they do not use computers, they are like
  3. With this technology intervention and use, they can be connected to the outside world. They can get enough information for their school-college studies, they can search solutions to their agriculture problem, inputs like fertilisers or pest control.
