Project Description

TCS has launched their flagship program for social empowerment, BridgeIT, in collaboration with the National Confederation of Dalit and Adivasi Organisations. The program aimed to use Digital tools to mainstream marginalized communities, with focus on education, employability, and entrepreneurship. In FY17, under BridgeIT, company has trained 126 Digital entrepreneurs to implement their computer-aided learning module in 210 government schools, reaching 18,230 children and 808 adults across 143 villages. In schools where the program is active, overall attendance went up by nearly 52%.TCS is also bringing the power of IT to support the Government of India’s efforts toward making every adult functionally literate. Company's long-running CSR initiative, the Adult Literacy Program (ALP) has the computer-based functional literacy (CBFL) system at its core. As part of the CBFL solution, non-literate adults receive approximately 50 hours of training in their native languages. CBFL supports nine Indian and three foreign languages. TCS also runs separate BPS and IT Employability Programs for the underprivileged. Launched in 2010, the BPS Program imparts basic training in English grammar and communication, mathematics, analytics, computers, and the working of the BPS industry. The IT Employability Program, on the other hand, trains rural engineering and science graduates in business skills, general aptitude, and technical skills. In FY17, over 9,100 students benefited from the former, while the latter helped 2,400 students. TCS launched its UDAAN program, which offers experiential, activity based learning over 14 weeks to help youngsters get access to employment opportunities. Facilitated by the National Skill Development Corporation, UDAAN is helping the youth in Jammu and Kashmir improve their employability. Of the 743 youngsters that have undergone training, 675 have been offered job opportunities with TCS. In Bengaluru, India, TCS has partnered with local NGOs to organize lab-based experiments to make science education more enjoyable for over 2,600 primary school students and 327 teachers across 19 government schools. TCS has also made science learning more accessible to children in tribal areas across Odisha by setting up mobile laboratories at 200 schools in the state, with the help of NGO partners. Children from marginalized communities need more than just classroom sessions to get a well-rounded education. So, TCS sponsors the education of students living in hostels run by the Manuski Center in Pune. Company also funded subject-wise tuition classes, water filters, computers, and Wi-Fi facilities at the center. A similar initiative in villages on the outskirts of Mumbai has givennearly 1,300 tribal children access to volunteer-led English and computer science lessons, subject-wise laboratories, computers, printers, and scanners. With knowledge of programming languages being an imperative to succeed in a Digital economy, TCS has developed LaunchPad, an animated series that uses gamification to teach programming logic in C++ and Python to school students. Since 2016, the program has reached over 5,700 students across India, Muscat, and Singapore. A similar program, InsighT, was launched in Chennai in 2006 to help higher secondary school students understand programming and application development. Having supported over 12,700 students since inception, InsighT was taken on the cloud in 2016 due to the growing demand for face-to-face sessions.
