SOCIAL EMPOWERMENT THROUGH ICT PROGRAMME

3rd May 2010

Overall development of a country is possible only with the support of Information and Communication Technology. To keep pace with modern world, men and women should acquire adequate knowledge about information technology. Awareness at
the grass root level is essential. At present youth and women in rural areas have very little knowledge about this technology. For the development of the society as a whole, they should be trained in computers. With this objective a local youth club named MAS Club Learning Centre, Mookkannoor in association with CSE Dept of FISAT has come forward and started a computer training programme named “IT VISION 2012”.

The aim of the programme is to train 10,000 youth and women in
the next thousand days with the support of 100 volunteers and field level activists. Present target audience is social workers, small scale entrepreneurs, labourers, parents whose children are settled abroad etc. The programme will have a long term impact on rural women and youth.

The pilot project was inaugurated on by Adv: Jose Thettayil, Hon.
Minister for Transport, Govt. of Kerala through video conferencing from his office at Trivandrum. In a meeting held at Mas Club, Br. Joseph Antony lighted the lampand inaugurated the classes.Mr. E K Rajavarma, Mr. V K Prasad, Kum. Aliakutty Antony, Mr. P V Mathew, Mr. J C Prasad and Mr. M K Varughese were present on the occasion.
