“Today knowledge has power. It controls opportunity and advancement.” – Peter Drucker
Computers are a common convenience nowadays, and most of us can’t even imagine living without them. But to a large part of our country’s rural population computers are still an unfathomable mystery. To bridge just this educational gap LPU NSS has taken up the community service endeavour of the Computer Literacy Program under the “Gyan Deep Teaching Project.”
Under this program, LPU NSS teams of students and faculty impart free basic computer training to people of nearby villages both on the campus and off site. Ten villages in LPU’s immediate vicinity are currently benefitting from the program through day and night classes.
A basic level class was conducted from 1st June to 30th July 2016, which included the teaching of MS office, email, internet etc. The training was imparted to LPU peons and ambulance drivers also. Recently a felicitation ceremony was held for this batch, where certificates were handed out to the students by LPU Pro Chancellor Mrs. Rashmi Mittal. Advanced level classes are expected to start from September 1, 2016.
