A graduate with PGDCA certificate, Sheeja from Thiruvananthapuram has been in computer training field for the past few years. However, introducing project PMGDISHA in her AanadPanchayat in the district made her part of a bigger cause after attending an introductory class.
Sheeja has been imparting digital literacy mainly to the home-makers and self-help women groups in the precinct. Her students have started using digital transactions and sending emails after being equipped under PradhanMantriGramin Digital SaksharataAbhiyan (PMGDISHA).
Following the increase in demand, she has also started new batches in schools where students are introduced to PMGDISHA curriculum. She is running the second batch for the school students in the Panchayat. The first batch students were certified last month.
Sheeja also hosted lectures of subject experts who shed light on the new technologies and how it helped the daily needs.
Following the constant request from the Panchayat authorities, Sheeja expanded her classes and started running batches in the Panchayat building for more beneficiaries. Even the ward members have enrolled for PMGDISHA project.
Till the date, 202 students have registered. 184 beneficiaries have completed the training programme and 74 were certified.
