Training in computer and internet skills to teachers of rural schools

After Government of India’s Digital India movement, everything is becoming digitized. Nearly 70% of India’s population still resides in rural areas they remain untouched with computer education. The percentage of IT educated in rural areas are very less. RLEK not just trains in rural areas but runs schools as well. Therefore RLEK needs volunteers to train their staff, teachers from all over the state of Uttarakhand and some beneficiaries who can become trainers. This will help RLEK in further training the rural populace in IT skills especially the students, who otherwise remain computer illiterate. Thus, RLEK needs training of trainers in computer skills for building the capacities of rural youth to work effectively in the digitial world. Such kind of skill is not easily available in India, and wherever available it is quite expensive to access the training.
