Last month, a team from the Musiri handloom cluster in Tamil Nadu, which has been adopted by DEF and Mphasis under the former’s Digital Cluster Development Programme to digitally empower the weavers in the region, carried out a massive mobilization drive to make community members aware of the summer courses that will be offered at their CIRCs in Trichy district. This effort brought a significant change in the enrollment number, leading to the joining of 118 new students. Meanwhile, the Musiri cluster has adopted two government middle schools to provide digital literacy to students and teachers.
June onwards, the schools will be able to access 1-mbps Wi-Fi connectivity on campus where our trainers will take daily two-hour digital literacy classes. The team is also planning to provide digital literacy to the respective head masters and establish Smart Classrooms for interactive education.
