Project Gyan IT - Static Computer Lab

At Global Group we execute O & M and Deployment contracts in rural India. Through our engagement with the community we learnt that IT literacy is still leaps away from the rural population. To bridge this digital divide Global Foundation conceived and started the project GYAN IT to spread computer literacy through training and infrastructure build up.

Basic computer literacy is very low in rural areas due to lack of basic IT infrastructure and skilled manpower. To bridge this digital divide in rural India, Global Foundation has taken initiative to introduce computer literacy program in rural areas with set up of static computer labs in secondary & higher secondary schools in Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra. Global Foundation has installed 8 to 10 computers in each of these schools and also provides both hardware and software supports. Global Foundation also conducts computer training for the teachers.
