The Digital Unify Program’s activity in India has been growing steadily since its inception in 2003.
As of Q1 2013, sixteen computer labs are active throughout the country as shown in the photo above.
Four labs exist in four schools neighboring ST offices in Noida.
They are: Rashtriya Shiksha Sadan Inter College, NS Balika Kanya Inter College, Bharitya Adarsh Inter College and Pandit Salag Ram Higher Secondary School.
An additional internal ST lab is available to ST volunteers in Greater Noida, a very tight-knit group, who actively organizes batches for the training of all kind of workers and for relatives.
In May 2012 Pietro Fox, president of the Foundation, travelled to India to support existing and future DU activities in the context of the Local Communities initiative. During his stay in India, Pietro met with the DU volunteers in Greater Noida, reviewed the status of DU India, visited potential partners for future expansion of the DU program.
In February 2013, a new ICBF training for the trainers was organized at the ST site to contribute to the spearheading of the DU program in the country and to cover up the needs of the new lab sites: Arya Inter College, Bahadrabad, Kailash Charitable Trust, & Vishwas Sansthan-NGO, Rae Bareli.
DU India has reached over 16'952 trainees as of Q1 2013. The Foundation is willing to cooperate with more local partners in order to expand the Program to new locations in India in the future.
