Sshrishti’s vision of integrated and holistic development entails Sshrishti’s efforts towards bridging the ever-widening divide in digital literacy. Given post-independent India’s lop-sided development outcomes and the continuing disparity in its planning and implementation, Sshrishti attempts to achieve digital literacy by providing basic, elementary and advanced training in computer applications to those at the margins of India’s digital revolution who miss out on the associated dividends that brings in better opportunities at employability, communications and functionality.
At Sshrishti, we hope that digital literacy would not only supplement schooling and education but also foster employability, greatly enhancing the quality of livelihood and possibilities available to youth from marginalized and impoverished communities. It is with these objectives that Sshrishti’s digital literacy programme incorporates:
Community mobilization and outreach activities for securing greater participation from women and girls.
Use of digital technology to foster awareness and supplement school education.
The programme started in 2008 in a village named Surana in Rajasthan and since then, has covered villages in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Currently, the project is operational in Delhi and across villages in Uttarakhand. Sshrishti’s digital literacy programme has so far benefited over 10,000 students.
