In India, and especially in Himalayan region of North India, the mountain children are bereft of Computer learning opportunity in comparison to the children all over the world. Digital skills are key to success in the 21st century. We hope to close this gap, empowering the mountain children with computer education.
We intend to start the computer literacy center in the new academic session of April,2020. This will be located in Kharadi village in Uttrakhand(India). The center will be equipped with 10 desktop computers along with related learning material. Also the center would serve as a means to organize conferences, seminars on issues ranging from education to women empowerment. The total cost of set up is as follows:-
- $7 donation will cover one child tutoring for one month of computer learning.
- $21 donation will cover one-tenth cost of purchasing a desktop computer.
- $40 donation will cover one child computer learning material for for the full two weeks of the program.

We hope to raise $3,700 to cover 20 students, as well as logistics and incidentals.
