Kaifi Azmi Computer Training Centre

comcentreAt a time when the importance of computer literacy was still evolving in metropolitan cities, Kaifi Azmi established a Computer Training Centre, inaugurated by H.E. Suraj Bhan, the then Governor of Uttar Pradesh, and Member of Parliament Amar Singh who had contributed to the centre through his MPLADfunds.

In year 2003, NIIT successfully initiated the programme 'Hole-in-the-Wall Education Ltd. (HiWEL)' managed by MWS. A hole in the wall was created to set up the model system in Mijwan, a kiosk with a color monitor, touchpad and Internet access. The programme aimed to address literacy and bridge the digital divide.

The kiosk was constructed such that a monitor was visible through a glass plate built into a wall. A touch pad was also built into the wall. The PC driving the monitor was on the other side of the wall in a brick enclosure. The kiosk had access to the Internet through a dedicated 2Mbps connection.

The children were the first users. They learned how to use various programmes such as paint, browse the web, read the news. The system showed that girls and boys from Mijwan became highly capable at using various features of the computer regardless of lack of proficiency in English.

Kaifi Azmi Computer Centre has two Computer Laboratories and 15 Computers. There are 3 computer training programs that are taught at Mijwan.
