Chamladevi Intercollege is an unaided school, which has close to 600 girls enrolled in it. These girls come from the poorest strata of people living around Jayapur. Most of these girls are from Orthodox families and cannot pursue a higher education even if they have the capability to. They are attending the school because of their own interest in education and our hope, with establishing this computer lab is to take the first step in empowering them to make a difference in their own lives.


Theory of Change


If girls living in underprivileged areas of India are taught about using computers and the internet to solve their problems, it will empower them to learn, utilize their resources and be able to better their socio-economic status.


The Hope


Computer literacy and computer labs have tremendous potential for changing the lives of kids. Imagine a child without the access of computer and internet, his dreams will be limited because he has not yet understood the various possibilities that this world can offer to him. Now consider a child given access to a computer and internet, the child dreams big, delivers big and helps the economy to move forward. All of this however, won't have been possible if we do not allow the child access to best of tools available on the internet. In today's climate, gaining familiarity with digital device functions and features is now just as important as learning to read and write. Most important of all is the proper understanding of the internet and how it can be used to solve problems.
Even the government has initiated the program under NDLM where two tier courses are being run. The Tier 1 Program is to make a person IT literate i.e. to be able to use digital devices and be able to search information on internet. The tier 2 program is to make a person able to access the e-governance services offered by the government agencies.
