Meet JagdambaComputer Teacher, Jarangloi
"People in the village did not know what a computer was, so we brought them to the computer lab and taught them. We are trying to bridge the gap between city and village youth. Any girl who has studied up to Class 12 is eligible to train here, and we will help her find a good job."
