Currently there are 11 Digital Literacy training centers.  We have over 1400 youth  who have received digital literacy training in the past 3 years.

Rural youth are very disadvantaged because they have no knowledge of computers. Even though they may have graduated from high school, their lack of familiarity with computers disqualifies them. The Ekal  digital literacy centers have been a big boon to the Rural areas.
