0Gravity partners with Rainbow Foundation India to impart computer education to girl students
Last week on Nov 16th 2019, we initiated two new batches of 0Gravity Coding workshops simultaneously in Bengaluru and Chennai. We have partnered with Rainbow Foundation India (http://rainbowfoundationindia.in) to provide hands-on workshop on basic computer education to over 50 girl students across our coding clubs in Bengaluru and Chennai.
Rainbow Foundation’s vision is to be an organization in which the most marginalized and disadvantaged child is reached and cared for by organizations of disadvantaged people, with strong contributions of the state as well as local civil society in every city creating a movement for caring of the dispossessed for the dispossessed.
Through 0Gravity’s workshops, we are imparting basic computer education to girl children in the age group of 14 – 18 years old from Rainbow homes, a program of Rainbow Foundation. Most of these girl children came from street situations into Rainbow Foundation.
The group will go through an intensive 3 months program on Basics of Computers and Website Programming using HTML on the weekends. The volunteers for the workshop are technologists from Saggezza and a global investment bank.
During the launch event, we welcomed the students and thanked he volunteers for their tremendous efforts in contributing towards 0Gravity’s cause. We capped the day off by immediately beginning with an introductory session about the concept of computers, websites and HTML.
Our movement moves upwards and onwards!
