Pune City gathers 100 thousand volunteers to spread its new digital literacy curriculum

A group of non-governmental and private organizations supported Pune City, India and the National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) Foundation to develop a curriculum for promoting digital literacy. Over 100 thousand volunteers will support in teaching the contents of the program to people around the city, promoting the “Digitize Pune” local campaign.

Some of the topics that will be included in the curriculum are online transactions, e-wallets and mobile applications. Volunteers will earn certificates of honor after training 10 beneficiaries to incentivize more participation and increase the impact of the program. This initiative is aligned with the recent creation of 20 Digital Literacy centers in the city.
