WHAT WE DO
At Digital Equity, we’re working every day to provide digital literacy(computer and internet based skills) and other ancillary skills to those 425 million children in India who do not have access to a computer. Digital Equity is a non-profit leading the digital inclusion movement in India by teaching essential digital skills in regional Indian languages to students who do not have access to a computer. Digital Equity runs its flagship program in government & affordable private schools to teach computers to secondary students and also equip them with other ancillary skills required for career readiness. Each of our students is part of our ‘class to career pipeline’ and our intervention with our students is for 8 years starting in secondary school, continuing through college, and supporting them till they land their first job.
We run our programs through decentralized clubs in universities to scale our reach and impact as many students as possible.
“I was listening to what my teachers and elders were telling me to do after my 10 grade. Digital Equity's digital essentials program helped me do my own research, read more about each field on the web. I was fascinated by the role electronics play in technology today. Now I am pursuing my diploma in electronics. ”
