My name is daljit singh, i am computer science engineer based in Mumbai, India. I have quit my day job (as a project manager in e-commerce startup) for a cause. We are planning to educate -rural people, rural area students and old age people about computers and internet. So that, they can also get connected to rest of the world at the same time, being a new users on internet they would be vulnerable to online scams and other threats so we will educate them about all that also.
Why this cause is important?
Because, India and other Asian countries might be projected as a largest IT service provider but in rural areas people are not well educated and not connected to internet at all. They are still living in pre-internet era.
How we are planning to do that?
We will conduct free seminars with the help of local schools as well as local NGO's if required we will establish free to use computer centers with the help of local people or schools.
Who will conduct these seminars?
Volunteers from universities or corporates.
Where this donation money will be spent?
In organising seminars, to print study materials, for awareness campaigns, for the traveling & stay of volunteers, for organising and managing day to day activities of this cause.
Can you volunteer?
Sure, why not? We are looking for helping hands.
Is this cause already running?
This cause is expected to start from 10 April 2018.
