Over fifteen thousand students across India receive digital literacy under the scheme
AISECT's one year old partnership with Intel has scored success in delivering basic technology literacy education to 15,847 students from across the rural and semi-urban areas of India so far.
It has been almost a year since AISECT had signed an MoU with the Intel Easy Steps Program to provide an array of services to harness the digital literacy and conquer the digital divide. The program is being conducted through the numerous multipurpose training AISECT centers in 27 states.
Easy Steps Program was launched by Intel in 2010 to improve digital literacy in Asia Pacific region. The program was developed for learners with little or no prior computer experience.
Commenting on the association, AISECT's director Siddharth Chaturvedi said, "Our organization firmly believes in harnessing the power of Information Technology for the benefit of the less privileged population. Most of our students are placed in the unorganized sector and with the rapidly changing skills scenario in the country, it is essential to keep pace and incorporate the latest developments. Intel's impeccable technology will help us in imparting digital literacy essential for improving the quality of lives. Henceforth, we plan to introduce this programme for every academic session in the curriculum of the courses offered by all the six AISECT Academies."
