Sankalp Digital

Being digitally literate is the need of the era. At the urban community level, there is a huge requirement for imparting digital literacy skills, recognising this need Seva Sahayog took the initiative to start a digital literacy program .
The program focuses on improving the lives of urban community dwellers by providing digital literacy knowledge and simplifying their day-to-day life.
During and after Covid the digital literacy program team worked with NGOs all across Maharashtra and respective beneficiaries at Yavatmal, Buldhana, Nagpur,Chandrapur, Ahmednagar, Kolhapur, Jalana, Sangli, Jalgaon, Ratnagiri, Osmanabad, Nanded, Nashik, Solapur, Latur, Mumbai, Mulashi, Bhor, and Junnar.
This project aims at enabling contemporary education with the right technology,for underprivileged children. An approximate ratio of ‘1 computer for 10 students’ is kept in mind while deciding on the number of computers for any given school. In addition to laptop/desktop, at some places, we have also provided a webcam or


  • To empower at least one person in a vasti-family with digital literacy skills.
  • To make them aware of how to make use of this skill for various day-to-day activities in their lives.
  • To support schools in remote locations in Maharashtra by setting up computer labs and extending digital literacy to schools.


Interestingly, the age group for digital literacy programs is as wide as 14 to 60 years.
After the digital literacy class, students have acquainted themselves with the required digital literacy skills and their applications in daily life. After completion of  the course, more than 70% of the students can handle computers confidently.

Students are using this knowledge for making their presentations and academic videos with interest and ease. The educators also find these classes very useful.
Now they can handle computer-related queries better, they can find more ways of making their teaching interesting. The educators are requesting detailed courses in Advanced Excel and MS Office etc.

Community residents have started doing daily transactions using digital means.Women are independently carrying out online transactions like online mobile recharge, paying electricity bills, online payments, money transfers using Google pay and PhonePe etc.

After Seva Sahayog helped set up computer labs in the twenty schools, practical sessions were started at these schools. Through the internet, they search and get additional educational information. Additionally, teachers are able to prepare power-point presentations and videos based on their syllabus and have started  teaching using innovative means.
