 VLE Sneha Lata organizes special digital literacy training for ‘Banjara’ community in Rajasthan

Despite being aware of all the hurdles and hardships she would meet, a woman VLE from a small village of Kasba, near Alwar district of Rajasthan organized 20 days of digital literacy training for nomadic people, commonly known as ‘Banjaras’ .

Banjara community comprises of a large number of poor families, who are digitally illiterate. Most of them are daily wage workers and have limited access and knowledge of digital devices. However, VLE Sneha Lata took up the challenge to spread awareness of digital technologies among this tribe. She personally visited the head of the tribe and convinced him for his support to organize digital literacy session.

VLE Sneha Lata provided them with hands-on training on laptop and mobile phones and taught them about various components of digital devices. She also screened the training e-content on various modules of NDLM.

The ‘banjaras’ were very happy to receive information about digital technologies and realized the importance of digital literacy in today’s world. After receiving training on digital devices and various communications possible through digital devices, the Banjaras have been curious to know more about the Common Services Centers and the Digital India Programme. Many of them have also shown an inclination for opening a CSC.
