Pune: NGOs Seva Sahayog and Software Exporters Association of Pune (SEAP) recently provided 68 computers and nine laptops to 16 Zilla Parishad schools and three NGOs in Bhor taluka. The donations were part of its mission ‘Sankalp Digital Maharashtra’.  ‘Sankalp Digital Maharashtra’ is an initiative to provide digitalisation for schools from rural areas of Pune district. The mission was recently inaugurated at Balshikshan Mandir Auditorium, Mayur Colony, Kothrud. The participating organisations aim to make Pune District, the first digitally literate district of the country and they jointly provide computer sets and related education to all school students of remote areas. The ‘sankalp’ is the brain child of Vidhyadhar Purandare, Secretary, SEAP.  

SEAP intends to use unused computers from software companies for a social cause. After checking the working condition of these computers, the organisation provides them to schools from remote areas where digitalisation is a distant dream. Apart from providing hardware, the organisation works to provide computer education at these schools.
