In its bid towards civic-military partnership the Army, has initiated an e-literacy programme for the youth of remote areas in Rajouri and Reasi districts.

However, during the Qaumi Ekta meets conducted by the Rashtriya Rifles Battalions a proposal to conduct e-literacy courses and cadres for teachers was received in an endeavour to ensure continuity of the learning process imparted to the youth.

The e-literacy programme has admited  15 teachers at the Rashtriya Rifles Battalion based at Kalakote. The four week course will cover the broader aspects of elementary computer knowledge to include Windows operating system, MS Office, Internet and system management amongst others.

The course, conducted under the theme of “Train the Trainer” is being conducted by experienced staff from certified institutes. It is aimed at bringing a change in imparting education to the rural students by embracing e-literacy and making the students as well as the teachers prepared for a challenging future.

The teaching faculty of schools in the region expressed their gratitude to the Army for the course and opined that this will go a long way in maintaining the continuity of e-literacy in schools and help the students sharpen their technical skills apart from connecting with the outside world by means of internet.

The endeavour by the Army is small but a genuine effort to shape a better future for the present generation and help them become an active element of the national mainstream.
