Small wonder

Reaching out to Neighborhood Schools Shiva a student of Kannada medium, Government Higher Primary School, Vasantpura took the opportunity to attend free Digital literacy training under the Dell YouthConnect program in his neighborhood Government High School – Uttarahalli, Bangalore. He aspired to be like other students who study in an English medium school and learn 21st century skills. Shiva’s eagerness made him spend extra time in the lab to enhance his digital skills and to even ask the Principal if he could repair the 3 -4 computers that were lying around. After doing that successfully, he further offered to take up the role of a trainer in his school which did not have one.

His passion inspired all his peers and now all students in his school aspire to be technologically abled. His influence also motivated a group of 6 students to become trainers like him and to take the computer classes for his entire school. “I do not have words to express my gratitude to these 6 students who have taken the initiative to teach my entire school. Nothing is impossible in this world.. Great initiative by the organization who taught them”!!!
