Samagra is running a basic computer training program for the past 2 and a half months for girls. A total of 30 girls are part of this program which has been divided into 4 sessions. Most of the girls have previously never seen or used a computer, but now they are much more comfortable using it and are learning the basics. This program intends to build their confidence regarding it and also help them discover new opportunities in income generation.
