As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Flagship Program Saksham, Indus Towers Limited recognizes 40 beneficiaries for completing a Digital Education course through the Digital Transformation Van (DTV) Program in New Delhi. This program intends to improve digital education, digital skills, and internet access in the region’s rural and semi-urban areas. Notably, we have seen active involvement from all women in Delhi this time.
The event took place at the Jyoti Nagar Police Station in North East Delhi. The event was graced by Dr Joy Tirkey, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), North East Delhi, who gave his valuable insights and praised the efforts of Indus Towers and NIIT Foundation.
The Digital Transformation Van (DTV) is a 20-seat solar-powered Digital Transformation Van that acts as a mobile digital classroom, outfitted with cutting-edge computing and printing technologies, software, and e-learning tools. It is intended to provide important technology skills to underserved areas, both urban and rural. Digital literacy, IT education, Cyber Security/IoT development, video conferencing counseling, and a mass literacy program are among the program’s five essential components.
The DTV initiative, which began in 2018 and is aligned with the National Digital Literacy Mission, has had a tremendous influence in boosting digital literacy, education, and access to internet services. The initiative’s successful reach for communities in Delhi, Dehradun, and Bhopal has benefited over 1.6 lakh people through its video-based educational program.
“I extend my heartfelt congratulations to Indus Towers for their commendable initiative in empowering digital skill development through DTV,” said Joy Tirkey, DCP, North East Delhi. Their commitment to provide connectivity to Delhi’s rural and semi-urban populations is very inspirational, and it is bridging the digital divide and empowering citizens, particularly women.”
“Digital literacy is critical for helping people improve their lives,” said Charu Kapoor, COO of the NIIT Foundation. “Our collaboration with Indus Towers demonstrates our strong commitment to this goal.” The DTV program delivers education and opportunities directly to areas in need. It ensures that everyone, particularly those with fewer privileges, can reap the benefits of the digital age. We firmly believe that this initiative serves as a paradigm for ensuring a brighter future for everybody.”
Individuals ranging in age from 14 to 60 years old and from various backgrounds have benefited from the DTV program. School-aged children, women, Self-Help Groups, homemakers, entry-level employees in businesses, farmers, and individuals who want to improve their digital literacy abilities are among those who would benefit.
