The Digital centre was conceptualized in association with the NGO called Literacy India to make a meaningful change in the lives of under privileged women and young girls through digital education. The project within the framework of Orange Foundation aims to uplift 250 underprivileged women and young girls by setting up a resource center for software and hardware training. The centre will be equipped with high end PCs, projector, tablets and a raspberry server pre-loaded with educational contents.

Apart from digital education, they will also be having English classes and soft skills training to make them self-reliant and confident individuals.
Soft skills classes will allow them to learn about the work environment while increasing their self-confidence.
The objective is to enable the participants to take up industry-relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood, having acess to employment, .
