The objective of the program is to reach out to all the children from disadvantaged backgrounds, who do not have the opportunities for exposure to IT like other children. The program aims to spread the vast knowledge of computers among these children according to their age. Our approach has always been holistic and program management
oriented. Our experiences have made us mindful of the different facets that influence a child’s learning and also the multiple variables that contribute to the overall success and sustainability of a Centre. Thus, the execution of the CAL & DLLS Program is always locally pertinent and contextually relevant, taking into consideration innumerable criteria.
The preliminary stage involves careful selection of partner schools, recruitment/training of teachers, community mobilization, curriculum finalization, development of teaching-learning aids and base line testing. Classes are kept small to ensure individual attention and optimal learning. The Hardware used is of a high quality and the software includes that developed by Pratham in local languages designedaround school curriculum. The computers are provided in a ratio of 50:1, i.e. 50 children per computer.
To make certain that desired goals & outcomes are being achieved, Evaluation and Monitoring is done at regular intervals and overseen by the CAL Executive Team.

program aims to provide school going children from 6-9 age group with quality computer aided education. The program focuses on providing the less privileged children with access to IT. Each centre works as a combination of 3 factors.High-quality hardware that makes the children comfortable with, educational software developed by Pratham in various Indian languages aptly designed around the school curriculum, a library corner that has numerous educative books in local language, a craft corner that enables the children to learn their academics through the projects and crafts they prepare.
