This is a 2021 digital campaign for San Diego Community to raise funds to sponsor Ekal Digital Bus
San Diego Community has been a strong supporter of Ekal and its initiatives. It has helped us support nearly 1500 schools in the past 12 years. The Ekal San Diego chapter would like to help the community expand their support from just sponsoring schools to also supporting Ekal's initiative to enhance digital literacy and encourage the people living in remote and tribal villages to have a first-hand exposure to computer.
The main objective of the Ekal on Wheels is to generate computer awareness, enhance digital literacy and to make the facility available at the doorstep to encourage people to overcome their inhibitions and accept it open-mindedly.
The van is expected to have 15 working terminals with pre-installed self-learning software. It can accommodate 15-20 students at a time. One dedicated trainer, assisted by local Ekal teacher provides training for two and a half hours in one village. We need to raise $70,000 to support capital expenditure for the mobile van, computers and also to sustain its maintenance.
We hope the San Diego community will step up to the cause and help raise the required funds in the next one year.
