National Digital Literacy Mission (‘NDLM’) has been initiated with the vision to empower at least one person per household with crucial digital literacy skills by 2020. This is expected to touch the lives of more than 250 million individuals over the next few years. NDLM is an effort to complement government’s vision to transform one from each household as digitally literate. The project aims at helping adults with low technological literacy develop the skills they need to interact in an increasingly digital world.
The National Digital Literacy Mission is a dynamic and integrated platform of digital literacy awareness, education and capacity programmes that will help rural communities fully participate in the global digital economy. Our focus is on making technology central to enabling change.
The various stakeholders for the Mission are:
Government of India, working to extend the vision of a digital India by promoting e-governance and transform India into a connected knowledge economy.
Corporate partners, who through their sustained efforts with NDLM have been harnessing collective energies to bring down the divisive digital wall.
Implementation partners, who are empowering communities with capacity building and training programs through digital means.
