Free computer literacy for Patna’s poor

Peace Foundation together with Asim Bihar Foundation has started a free computer learning centre for unprivileged school going students at Emadpur Middle School in Bihar Sharif district.

M Naushad Ansari, president, Peace Foundation, said that though the free coaching centre is running for almost two years, it was being felt that the students should also have basic knowledge of computer science. “This era is of information technology and the medium of knowledge is computer. One can acquire ocean of knowledge using the internet. Our students should not lag behind in this field,” he said. On 16 April 2015 the free computer learning centre was inaugurated.

Mohammad Babar, President of Asim Bihari Foundation emphasized that what is being done at this centre is only in this small town. It is the need of hour to start similar centers in every block area so that the work gets multiplied.

Aftab Hassan Shams, a renowned social activist from Bihar Sharif, appreciated the initiative of both the foundations and appealed the society to start more NGOs like such. ‘In the coming days various schemes will be handed over to the NGOs and we also hope to get support from some welfare schemes by the government,’ he felt.
