The Vicki Standish e-Education Centre has been receiving technical and other support from expert organisations and introducing an innovative programme in a rural community where computer and other technologies are inaccessible. TEWFI has recently established a rapport with the Rotary Club of Madras Midtown, Digital Literacy Exnora and Indiss Infotech Solutions Pvt Ltd We have obtained self tutoring software which is developed specifically to be used without an instructor. Simply by following the instructions, the knowledge of basic computer operations is imparted. This project was recently introduced for women, adolescent girls and children in the community.
Presently, more than 25 children in the community and 10 children at UCH have undergone this training and have achieved impressive results. This programme has helped those children and adults, who have never seen computers, to learn basic computer operations such as MS office, Internet usage and other operations.
We are seeking funds to purchase a mini bus which will be altered in such a way that computer students can operate and learn computing inside the bus itself. We firmly believe this will benefit those people who are very much interested in getting an education in computing but are not able to access our existing centre, the Vicki Standish e-Education centre.
