    Post World Computer Literacy Day


    DECEMBER 2



    We live in a world of computer and technology, where everyone's development and civilazation depends on his rate of consumption of computer service.After consistently working towards “bringing people and computers together” for two decades, its is decided to make computer knowledge available to those socio-economic sections of society that had been left out of the IT revolution sweeping the world. Thus, was born the World Computer Literacy Mission, celebrated for the first time on December 2, 2001.

    One of the most broad-based and expansive computer literacy initiatives to be unrolled across the world, the World Computer Literacy Day Mission has assumed the form of a revolutionary movement. In the first year itself, WCLD enabled 104,000 citizens to learn computers. In the subsequent years, thousands more were brought into the IT fold and today over 400,000 people have been touched by this initiative.

    The World Computer Literacy Mission, now in its fourth year, has caught the imagination of several countries beyond India.The World Computer Literacy Mission has attracted immense support and attention from different parts of India and beyond—drawing into its fold a wide spectrum of individuals, state Governments and business organizations. The initiative is today an annual event—a portal through which hundreds of thousands step into the digital world.

    Here are highlights of the earlier World Computer Literacy Mission activities
    1. Over 10 million Indians pledged support to the mission .
    2. Participants came from diverse backgrounds—from the tribals of Adilabad district in Andhra Pradesh to Elected Members, School Principals, Students, Senior Citizens and celebrities .
    3. Nearly 70 Indian Parliamentarians and Indian PM pledged support by sitting through a historic and unprecedented computer literacy session in the Parliament House Annexe.
    4. Nigeria played host to a lot of World Computer Literacy Mission action, which was initiated across cities such as Lagos and Abuja. Ghana’s Peter Woicke, Executive Vice-President of IFC, unveiled the World Computer Literacy Mission logo .
    5. The movement established that computer literacy could cut across economic, social and cultural barriers .
