About the initiative
Computer Training and Digital Literacy Program is an initiative under BharatCares (by CSRBOX) that aims to provide basic computer and digital literacy training to the girls and women who have either dropout from the school or currently pursuing their education. The onsite training program has also opened up the avenues for housewives and married women who want to get the hands-on training in Computer and Digital Literacy Space.
The program focuses on bridging the digital divide by imparting the essential digital literacy skills to empower the girls and women.
The status of digital literacy among women can be understood by this fact that the digital gender gap in India is huge. As per the recent survey conducted by National Family Health Survey, over 60 per cent women in 12 states and union territories have never used the internet. In comparison, more percentage of men that is 50% have used the internet.
Being a literate in the present context, is not enough. Literacy has now changed into digital literacy. It may be called the need of the hour, but disruptive changes this year have spurted the urgency for digital literacy among both men and women. With the world changing, technology becomes the inevitable part of everyday life. The technology is being used everywhere starting from our homes to schools to hospitals to offices and more.
The pandemic also increased the use of digital technology and opened new platforms for e-commerce and online learning, enabling access to markets that were previously out of reach for women micro-entrepreneurs and women’s collectives.
