The Story So Far

NASSCOM Foundation who has been a flag bearer for overall digital literacy across the country, having trained over 90,000 people has partnered with HelpAge India to help this cause and are looking for volunteers who can give a small part of their weekends to help our senior citizens become Digitally Literate and connect them with the Online World. HelpAge therefore conducts Digital Literacy Sessions for elders, working with Senior Citizens Associations across the country. For this purpose it has also released a Handbook titled ‘EASY GUIDE: How to use Smartphones and Computers’. HelpAge uses young volunteers to teach elders how to use Smart Phones, Computers & the internet. These Digital Literacy Sessions hope to go a long way in helping our elders live independently.
