Prior to the pandemic our Trust was conducting Computer literacy drive in two NMMC Schools at Nerul. We have restarted the drive with computer classes being held for 2 hr daily, thrice a week; at Shirvane goan, Vidyalaya. We will also be starting the drive in NMMC School at Sector 4 shortly. when the school is ready.
Project Start Date : 19/11/2016.
Unlike the higher end schools the children of NMMC schools are handicapped when it comes to using computers. In order to enlighten these children about computer fundamentals, Windows operating system and Microsoft Office, our Trust has initiated this project. The classes will be held to reach out to all the 9th and 10th standard students so that they acquire at least the basic computer skills.
The first school where we initiated the project was at Mahanagar Palika Sanchalit Secondary School, Shirvane, Nerul and this was on 19/11/2016. Our Trust wishes to thank Mrs. Sangeetha Padi, Co-Founder of ApMoSys, for coming forward to make a difference in the lives of the underprivileged children. ApMoSys is a software company based in Mhape ( Navi Mumbai )
Location: Madhyamik Vidyalaya at Sector 4, Nerul: In the month of December 2019, we started our Computer Literacy Drive in a second Municipal school in Nerul. This has been made possible due to a well wisher, Mrs. Suwarna Anandanarayanan( seen in the picture below) who has volunteered to teach the children. Along with Computers, she will, in due course, also help the children in Science & Maths.
Vasheni Village Zilla Parishad Primary School: The school had requested our Trust’s help for a Computer Instructor for their school. Visited the school and finalized Deepika T Mhatre as the Instructor (second on the left). She has done her B. Com and will take up the responsibility of teaching basics of MS Office to the school children. The school Principal is on the left and the village Sarpanch is second on the right. The project has taken off from the 1st of January 2020.
Visit to Vasheni Village, Zilla Parishad School on 12/02/2020 to inspect and hand over the 1st cheque to the teacher.
The project is a continuous one with the aim of creating computer literacy among the maximum number of underprivileged children.
Our sincere thanks to our well-wishers and also to the Principals of the schools for the continuous success of the project.
