Teach Computer and IT skills in rural schools, India

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Just like children throughout the world, Indian children are fascinated by computers and eager to learn how to use them. Teaching such a useful skill is invaluable, both to individuals and their communities. From developing a better understanding of computers, job opportunities that would not previously have been available present themselves. With IT skills, children also find themselves in a position where they can benefit from all that the worldwide web has to offer.

In the 21st century, computer literacy is a skill that is valued almost as highly as standard literacy! It is therefore a huge advantage to learn the basics of computer use and this is something which our volunteers can help with. By sharing their knowledge of IT with students and teachers alike, volunteers increase the prospects of each individual they help.

Volunteers are needed to help teach very basic computer programs like Word and Excel. However, if you are also able to develop databases and assist with any maintenance work your help will be much appreciated. This IT project is suited to volunteers of all abilities and skill levels.
