Kanini ~ Computer Literacy

---------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------Affiliated Organizations

Why

In today’s technically advancing world, not everyone has access to a computer or gets the opportunity to utilise it. KANINI, started in June 2007, is an attempt by BHUMI to take the magical world of computers to lesser-privileged children. The programme's goal is to ignite young minds to the endless possibilities of a computer, make the children functionally e-literate, and help them become productive citizens of the future.
