Crisis: The majority of India's population being underprivileged do not have access to Information Technology (IT) and thereby lack basic computer knowledge and skills essential for progressing in today's digital age. PIF aims to bridge this digital divide by: (i) facilitating the adoption of IT in education and (ii) equipping disadvantaged youth with skills & tools that the new global economy demands.
Programs: 1) Computer Aided Learning (CAL): provides appropriate exposure to primary school children by simplifying understanding of new/difficult concepts through use of IT. 2) Digital Literacy as Life Skill (DLLS): instils in secondary school students the skills and abilities on effective use of IT tools in everyday life, including basic programming. 3) India Digital Inclusion Program (IDI Program): helps disadvantaged youth develop IT skills, improve interpersonal skills and gain professional development exposure which impacts their ability to jump-start careers and find desired job opportunities. 4) Saksham: empowers teachers by exposing them to different pedagogies and innovative methods of teaching.
Outcome: So far 700,000+ students enrolled under CAL; 58,467 students impacted under E-School; 600+ school leaders trained under Saksham across 95 schools and 120,000 youth trained under India Digital Inclusion.
