National Digital Literacy Centre to train 1000 people in Hyderabad, India
CGI and Nasscom Foundation launched their second National Digital Literacy Centre in India. The centre, located in Hyderabad, Telengana, is designed to support India’s National Digital Literacy Mission (NDLM). It has three main objectives: building digitally literate communities through training, creating opportunities for industries to enhance digital literacy, and deploying citizen services in underserved communities.
The National Digital Literacy Centre will benefit 1,000 people, teaching them how to use computers and mobile phones. The curriculum includes emailing, using social media, purchasing items from e-commerce sites, paying bills online, and accessing government services. Two additional centres will be launched in 2018, one in Chennai, and another one in Bangalore.
