There is much excitement in the little hamlet of Sonave village as approximately 200 children are learning the basics of computers. For many of them, this is their first experience on a real computer. Till now they had only seen it in a magazine.
During this one month free computer training program, they will be taught the nuances of Excel, Word, Power Point and Paint.
We envision developing computer labs for the schools in Sonave.
NDMCT in association with Budhelia Foundation is very happy to be a part of their educational learning.
NDMCT donated a computer lab to the Zilla Parishad school in Borichapada to help students reach their true potential. The school is situated in one of the remote parts of Sonave Village.During our month free computer training program in May 2015, we found that the students had the aptitude and interest to excel in computers, if given a chance. Till then, the children had only seen a computer in a newspaper.
NDMCT equipped the Zilla Parishad school in Sonave village with an e-learning system (K-Yan) so that each child can reach their true potential and also have fun while studying. The Borichapada Zilla Parishad school has only 5 teachers teaching ALL SUBJECTS to approximately 200 students from Std I to Std VIII. With an audio-visual e-learning classroom, the students will have the opportunity to expand their learning. The e-learning portal covers ALL subjects (SSC curriculum) from std I to Std X in Marathi.
We believe the future belongs to the educated young. Approximately 2500 young minds were nurtured during the 2015 summer vacation.
NDMCT in association with Budhelia Foundation conducted a one month free computer training program in Santacruz (E), Santacruz (W), Kurla ( E), Khar (E) and Chembur (E) from 11th May till 4th June 2015.
There was much excitement and happiness in the tribal village of Sonave, as approximately 250 children received their certificates of completion for the one month computer training program that they attended. The free computer training program was held in association with Budhelia Foundation from 20th April 2015 - 15th May 2015. Over this month, the children learnt about the various uses of excel, word, power point and paint. What we found fascinating was the ability of the children to quickly pick up the nuances of a computer which they had seen for the first time.
When the Principal, teachers and students of Greenlawns High School and Cathedral & John Connon School in Mumbai heard about the need for stationery in the tribal village and for the children of Tata Hospital, they donated books, pencils, crayons and colouring books in huge numbers. In total, over 500 books and stationery items were collected and distributed to the children of Tata Memorial Hospital and the children of Sonave Tribal Village.When the Principal, teachers and students of Greenlawns High School and Cathedral & John Connon School in Mumbai heard about the need for stationery in the tribal village and for the children of Tata Hospital, they donated books, pencils, crayons and colouring books in huge numbers.

For many children living in the remote village of Borichhapada in the Tribal belt of Saphale, commuting to school is not an easy task. Each day they walk approximately 6 Kms to get to school and back. Through our ‘Donate your Bicycle’ drive the people of Mumbai were motivated to donate their old bicycles towards making a child’s access to education easier. Hero Cycles too stepped in and supported this cause to make the journey to school easier. We believe lives can be transformed when we work together as a community.
