Ker­ala Chan­nel Part­ner Starts E-Lit­er­acy Hub

The DQWeek (Chennai) - - FRONT PAGE - DQW NEWS BUREAU Kot­tayam

V. Hari who owns IBC com­put­ers, a pa­tri­otic young chan­nel part­ner wanted to pro­vide dig­i­tal drive for the fi­nan­cially back­ward youth had come-up with a dig­i­tal lit­er­acy ter­mi­nal in his home vil­lage.

The idea hit Hari when he wanted to con­trib­ute to this na­tion’s dig­i­tal drive to the max­i­mum ef­fort that is af­ford­able by him. Thus the idea of free dig­i­tal lit­er­acy ter­mi­nal has come up in his of­fice in Kot­tayam Cen­tral Junc­tion.

Hari says, “As a com- mit­ted so­cial be­ing, I was think­ing on help­ing the so­ci­ety, es­pe­cially for the fi­nan­cially back­ward youths, this In­de­pen­dence day. It sud­denly sparked my mind, an idea which suits and sup­ports both the growth of such a cat- egory and evolv­ing dig­i­tal In­dia.”

The idea was to make his in­fra­struc­ture and ef­fort use­ful to pub­lic at zero cost. “I cre­ated a free wifi-zone and de­signed and in­stalled a free dig­i­tal lit­er­acy ter­mi­nal in the name Free­dom Pad, meant for em­pow­er­ing de­serv­ing, grow­ing young minds.”

Through this, stu­dents can ac­cess in­ter­net us­ing this ter­mi­nal from 9.30 AM to 6.30 PM free of cost and can achieve dig­i­tal lit­er­acy skills.

The Kot­tayam part­ner is plan­ning to mar­ket the ini­tia­tive across the re­gion and is look­ing for a huge re­sponse. Hari, in the days ahead, is plan­ning to of­fer a free dig­i­tal hub with se­cure dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tion and trans­ac­tions.
