We joined hands with Dell Technologies to launch ‘Project Kaushal’. The project’s mission is to provide transformative, personal and skill-based education through the optimum use of technology to the marginalized and disadvantaged thereby enhancing employability and self-reliance.
The project aims to address all the three target groups and all the three critical needs in order to ensure a multipronged approach to the achieve the vision of developing a B-School for the marginalized:
For providing early orientation to futuristic courses and enable skill training readiness.
For providing employability skills in IT and ITES Sector.
For laying a foundation to advanced training by bridging the digital divide through access to digital literacy courses.
'Project Kaushal' will be implemented in a phased manner, focusing on the following components:
Orientation courses for children
The courses have been developed in order to map the children’s aptitude and interest in these areas and identify the exceptionally talented ones and prepare a roadmap for the advanced training programs for the identified ones. The courses include Coding, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics and Smart processes.
Digital literacy for community
Even within Delhi and NCR, there are geographical areas which are extremely cut off from the main areas and exhibit a huge digital gap. A 20-hour basic digital literacy course is being offered to such neo literates with no prior exposure to IT training.
Skill training for youth
The skills training courses are being run in partnership with likeminded NGOs close to the opportunities of placements in relevant sectors. Courses offered presently include Data Entry, Tally, Digital Marketing, Showroom Operations and Retail Management, Logistics Management and BPO Voice.
children in the age group of 12 -18 years will get training on futuristic courses such as artificial intelligence, coding, robotics, data analytics, smart processes
children with exceptional aptitude will get mentored in specialised fields
learners in digital literacy will get trained out of which atleast 700 will be girls and women of the project area
marginalised youth belonging to marginalized sections of the society will get quality skill training in 12 months through optimum use of technology
(approx) students and community members who are underrepresented and unprepared will find employment
