Requested by

Dotcom Vivid Computer House (Dvc House)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The Dotcom Vivid Computer House, Vehari Punjab, Pakistan, presently engaged in professional education & IT Skills to boys & girls of District Vehari (Southern Punjab), proposes to establish Technology Center for Women targeting 1,000 young women in low to moderate income communities in the city of Madurai located within District Vehari. The project aims to empower young women with technology skills to strengthen local towns in 03 Tehsils of District Vehari.

What is your project and how will it help?

It is estimated that within a span of three years, the project will have benefited over one thousand young women. Using the skills they have acquired, the girls can achieve financial independence by seeking work in word processing, database preparation and office management which are opportunities plentiful in the area.

A high proportion of young women in this area do not have any opportunity to acquire computer skills which is important to both the educational process and a significant contributor to achieving positive career outcomes. The proposed project aims to empower young women with technology skills by providing Microsoft Office and computer programming training, dispensing information technology career guidance and providing encouragement for further education.

The Technology Center will adopt open learning methodologies and facilitate an intensive ‘hands on’ experience. Focus areas will include word processing,
database management, internet skills and graphic design. The proposed project will target girls who belong to poor communities which are socially oppressed classes in this area, young women whose parents work in primary sectors such as agriculture and young women in dysfunctional families. It is expected around one thousand young women will benefit from proposed project within the first three years of its operation.

The project will train one thousand young women in the age group of fifteen to thirty five in basic computer skills. The participants will acquire different skills namely usage of Microsoft Office, databases, programming and the usage of the internet. Further, the Center will work in collaboration with local governmental organizations and non-governmental organizations in locating appropriate volunteer work. The trainees will develop knowledge competencies and applicable skills in information and communication technology and will be
equipped with different computer skills which would provide them with employment opportunities and advance economically in today’s digital economy.

In addition to the Dotcom Vivid Computer House, Vehari, Computer Education Centers and Web Browsing Centers & Different local business institutions, NGOs and resource centers will also assist in finding employment opportunities for the beneficiaries.
