Project Brief

WASH Institute being the National Key Resource Center for Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, runs formal and non-formal courses on Water Sanitation and Hygiene throughout the year and the course center is located in Reddiarchattiram, an administrative block away from urban city. There is no computer education centers around 15 kms and hence WASH Institute initiated this Rural Computer Education center to provide digital literacy to school and college students. The project is supported by HCL Foundation


Fully furnished computer lab was established with 23 standalone computers. The center currently offers a three month Certificate course in Basic Computer Programs and Applications with flexible timings to accommodate rural school students, college students and drop out children. Week end courses are also offered.

The project has just initiated and aims to benefit 600 to 800 students in a year.
