Nabarangpur: At a time when the computer has become a part of life for many, and especially students, a Trust has come forward to impart free computer education to the economically weaker students of the tribal-dominated Nabarangpur district.
Aaradhya Charitable Trust (ACT) has lately garnered admiration for its effort to educate the students in some rural pockets of Nabarangpur district, who are deprived of computer education.
The Trust started a free computer education drive six months ago in Banuaguda village under the Jharigam block of the district. At least 20 students received computer education in the first batch. After the successful accomplishment of the six-month training course, they were given the completion certificates.

Free computer training by the Trust for the second batch has been started recently with 25 students regularly getting educated at Belagam Garama under Jharigam block.
Talking to Kalinga TV web portal, Trustee of ACT Sagarika Satapathy said, “It will not be an exaggeration to aver that computer education is far from reach for many poor students in the rural pockets of this tribal-dominated district. The nearest place where they can get educated about the computer is Umerkote, which is 18 km away from Jharigram. Again, many of the economically backward students can’t afford to pay the fees for the said education. Keeping this in mind we started the free computer education drive six months back in Banuaguda and received wide applause. Being encouraged with the success of the first batch, lately, we started the second batch at Belagam.”
