About the Programme
The Udayan Care Information Technology Programme planted its roots in 2004, bringing technology closer to the underserved communities and using it as a tool to improve their livelihood opportunities. Udayan Care elevates the levels of computer literacy among youngsters, helping them keep up with an increasingly digital world. The programme focuses on disadvantaged sections such as densely populated clusters of slums in the suburbs that lack access to technology.
It empowers children, women and youth through digital literacy and job-oriented skill training. Established on the core belief that skills improve employability, our centres are a hub of knowledge and learning in digital education that open doors to new career options for our beneficiaries.
Currently we have 14 IT centres, spread across 3 states. Our IT centres offer various certificate and diploma courses in basic as well as advanced computer applications, such as Community Technical Skills Program(CTSP), Diploma in Graphics & Print Design, Diploma in information technology (DIT), E-Accounting with Tally ERP.9, Desktop Publishing, Computer Concepts, Diploma in Computer Application and Advance Diploma in Computer Application. We offer a few Microsoft, Adobe certifications, NIELIT (Govt of India) certification and Tally Authorised certificates too.
Not only this, we put special emphasis on other aspects of holistic development of the beneficiaries through soft skills training, English speaking skills, personality development etc. We also offer mentoring support to make the beneficiaries ready for the professional world.
The programme’s core objective is to change the lives of underserved youth and women by fostering digital literacy. The courses help our students learn essential computer, language and interpersonal skills that enable them to use technology to enhance their employability. The programme imparts IT skills to disadvantaged sections such as slums, resettlement colonies and other low-income neighbourhoods, with a strong focus on youth and women. Therefore, about half of our enrollees are women!
Empowering Youth with Holistic growth
To empower the disadvantaged youth, women and children with holistic growth and development, we train them in soft skills through regular sessions aimed at personality development and leadership building. We've found that co-curricular activities help promote peer bonding and foster team spirit. Our enrollees emerge as confident job seekers, enriched with the ability to make informed decisions.
We are convinced that exposing students to the skills and information aligned with their choice of career paths, enhances their confidence. Therefore, we regularly conduct workshops to help the enrollees focus on their strengths and pick their courses accordingly. The programme also facilitates interaction of the students with corporates and professionals, to ensure maximum industry exposure.
Taking Socio-economic Strides
Enrollment at our centres uplifts the personal, financial and social status of the beneficiaries, coming from disadvantaged backgrounds. Enriched by the exposure of interactions with individuals from different walks of life and learning the desired skill sets, they evolve into confident and self-assured members of modern urban society. Knowledge of computer softwares and the English language also helps the participants understand current government policies and the world around them better.
Our Placement Cell facilitates a smooth transition of the student from training ring to the professional arena. Equipped with career counselling, interview coaching and guidance, our enrollees stand a great chance of finding the desired jobs, and ultimately attaining financial self-reliance.
