In order to bridge the digital gap between students of rural and urban communities, a certain number of village schools in thirteen districts in the country have been provided with computers.

Computer Aid International UK based in the United Kingdom has donated computers to schools in rural areas with a purpose of promoting computer knowledge among teachers and students. Speakers at the inauguration programme of ‘Information and Communication technology Computer Training Programme’ pointed out that these positive aspects are being achieved by organisations on their own.

Around 16 non governmental organisations were selected from 13 districts, out of those 56 government schools and certain teachers from those schools were selected for the training programme.
