2016 Systers Pass It On Award Winner
Project: Namakkal District, Tamilnadu, India
Rama’s project will provide training for 20 girls in basic computer applications along with a certificate course in Tally (Accounting Software) and a certificate course in Desk Top Publishing. Each trade of this computer course will be taught for a period of three months. Soon after the training program, the girls will also be placed for jobs in browsing centers, printing presses, ware-houses, poultry units, and other offices as accountants, computer operators, programmers, and network administrators to handle the computer software and computerized applications.
“Many of them are adolescent girls willing to learn skills to come up in life,” Rama said of the program’s participants. “As they have limited or no scope for education and developmental trainings, we would like to train them in computer skills to take up a job to income the family income and to gain confidence.”
