Intel® Learn Program India
Empowering youth through digital literacy
Designed especially for young learners in developing countries, the Intel® Learn Portfolio is a set of informal courses that teach youth the technology skills they need to succeed in our increasingly knowledge-based economy. From Argentina to Zambia, Intel Learn has enriched the lives of learners in more than 30 countries to date.
In India, the Intel® Learn Program is a part of Intel’s ongoing efforts to support the Government of India’s efforts to improve digital literacy skills and to promote employability and economic growth in the country. Intel® Learn Easy Steps, launched in 2012, has reached over a million Indians, primarily in rural areas, while more than 180,000 learners in underserved communities have benefited from the Technology and Community, Technology at Work and Technology and Entrepreneurship courses across 22 states and 5 Union Territories.
“Digital Literacy is surely one of the mechanisms for skilling our citizens, and thereby developing national competitiveness. It provides for lifelong learning and promotes economic development.”
—J Satyanarayana, Secretary, Department of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India
