Project Kaushal is a project that provides computer skills training courses for children and adults. The project was launched in the year 2019 with an aim to impart free computer training to school age children and adults seeking to enhance job skills.
Understanding the basics of computer operations, Microsoft office suite with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, improving programming skills using Python, basics of website design, and Robotics courses are offered at the center. Each course ranges between two to four months. In order to prepare students for the workforce, soft skills are also included for individuals wishing to improve their skills for better employment chances.
Kriti opened its first Kaushal center in Film Nagar Slum(Shaikpet) and plans to open another center soon. The center is furnished with 8 Raspberry Pi kits and 13 desktop computers running the Windows OS, each of which is suitable for two pupils. As we are adhering to Covid restrictions, we have further decreased class sizes to a maximum of 18 pupils per session, thus ensuring ample computer time and the instructor's undivided attention for the children.
The Kriti team created the course material in conjunction with volunteers from different MNCs and other volunteers in house. The center remained closed during Covid lockdowns and some of the courses shifted to online mode.
