The primary aim of the SACRED Trust is to impart computer literacy to school children in rural India with the purpose of creating a full blown knowledge society. The Purpose of this Website is to seek support of the like minded people by informing them about the activities of the Trust initiated in the villages of Kanakapura taluk, located 50 km south of the famous IT City Bangalore. Support of the people essential to intensify the efforts of the Trust at spreading computer literacy, free of cost, among the children and unemployed youth in village India.
Computer knowledge has the power to transform village India by reducing the economic disparities between urban and rural areas and improving the living conditions. Computer literacy will enable the rural youth to become aware of developments in the field of agriculture, grain storage, water conservation, animal husbandry, forestry, horticulture, utilization of natural mineral resources and technical skills to brand and sell farm produce.
We hope this website will motivate other voluntary organisations to spread computer literacy in rural India.
