Case: eHope for Computer Education
Bridging the Digital Divide is a part of company's global CSR strategy.

The programme intends to impart computer literacy to 100,000 high school students annually. Currently, the programme covers the states of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh, but we plan to make it a pan-India programme.
