Project Description

The choice of education as a theme flows from TCS’ presence in the knowledge domain. The standard of education is a key factor that plays into both growth and sustainability. It is an integral component of development, and is critical to a community’s ability to compete in a rapidly-changing technology landscape. This covers the entire life path of students from school to Ph.D. as also skilling and adult literacy that enables livelihood. These contributions through TCS’ varied education programs in India, impacted 440,000 beneficiaries in FY 2018.

The Adult Literacy Program delivers basic lessons in reading, writing and arithmetic through TCS’ CBFL solution.

Often, there are societal barriers that crop up even before people can take a step towards continued learning. TCS’ BridgeIT program uses digital tools to address such access and competency gaps between marginalized communities and mainstream society.

Bridge IT entrepreneur serves as an inspiration to the youth in Bharatpur, Jhansi District. So far, 136 youth from socially and economically disadvantaged communities across six Indian states have been trained to be digital entrepreneurs through this program. TCS supports the digital entrepreneurs for an initial period of two years to make them self- sufficient and sustainable.

The IT and BPS employability program seeks to enhance the employability of undergraduate students from rural colleges. To enhance skills of its contract staff, TCS runs the Empower program to provide them with functional spoken English, basic computers and soft skills training. TCS volunteers conduct sessions within office premises for 25 hours, spread across five weeks.

ACTC familiarizes visually impaired persons with both computer hardware and software to enhance their employability.

TCS volunteers have been proactive in both leading and launching initiatives. A case in point is the group Women of Waze (WoW), which is based in the Wazapur village of Raigad district, Maharashtra. Launched in 2007, with the long-term objective of making women in Wazapur financially independent, WoW trains them to make bags in different styles and designs using jute, cotton, and other materials.
