Intel India’s digital literacy efforts got a fillip when it recently launched an Android based application of its Learn Easy Steps. As part of the initiatives undertaken under the Digital Literacy Mission, Intel also announced the completion of its ‘Follow the Fiber’ program conducted in the fi rst three villages to receive connectivity as part of NOFN roll out and released an its impact study.
Intel is among several other Indian and multinational companies who are supporting Indian government’s ambitious National Optic Fibre Network (NOFN). It aims to create the right eco-system to provide basic computer operating skills to at least one individual in every family. Intel, along with IT-ITeS industry body NASSCOM, launched the National Digital Literacy Mission in August 2012 to participate in the government’s plan of making at least one e-literate person in every household in India by 2020.
Intel’s Learn Easy Steps program has so far trained over 1.7 million individuals in the country over the last 18 months.
