Media, commerce, education, communication- much of our daily life now takes place online. Becoming digitally literate in the technical world is equivalent to reading, writing and mathematics. Therefore, we need to look at this fourth literacy in the mainstream.
But for countless Indians who lack basic computer skills, the rich cloud of online information is elusive. Working in partnership with India’s responsible business community, NASSCOM Foundation is attempting to close this digital divide by helping individuals harness the power of computers and develop necessary skills to start using them with confidence.
The Secretariat requires commitment from across sections of the industry to help bridge the accessibility gap. We are seeking to build coalitions among stakeholders to generate collective impact through NDLM. Enormous developmental potential exists if these partnerships are explored and embraced.
