We are thrilled to share the experiences and voices of our ICT Center trainees.
The ICT Center Model developed by Center for Sustainable Development (CSD) and Infrastructure for Sustainable Development (i4SD), which envisioned bringing digital skills, solar energy and potential future employment for women under one roof, has become a reality.
On December 18th, 2018, ICT Women’s Center in Mahabubnagar District of Telangana State in India opened for its first classes managed and led by Srinivas Akula and Navatha Kanike. The Center for Sustainable Development's education team- Radhika Iyengar, Haein Shin and Tara Stafford Ocansey- set the curriculum framework, with Joaquin Aviles Lopez offering infrastructure support.
Now, a year later (by the end of 2019), we will have around 300 trainees who successfully completed the program!
The Center offers training on English, computer, financial/business and life skills. Our trainees shared their experiences in the video below:
