Keeping in mind the changing times, the need of the hour is to have basic computer education. Since, computers are becoming an integral part of our daily lives, knowing how to use one is a must these days. The basic objective of this program was to train the youth belonging to the weaker sections of the society who do not have an easy access to computer and thus find it difficult to operate one.
The Basic Computer training program was conducted in association with the Samaj Kalyan Department and was conducted at the head office of Janki Devi Educational Welfare Society in Dehradun. The trainees were trained basics of computer like hardware, software, Operating system, MS Office etc. One batch of trainees comprised of 20 students and the entire course duration lasted for six months. The course module was followed as per the NIOS tailoring and stitching certificate program and the students were required to take an exam at the end of the six month course. The trainees were also given special lectures on personality development and how to work in a team environment.
