Duration: January 2020 - Ongoing

SUMMARY

The project seeks to build on the vision of India’s national Digital Literacy mission “to empower at least one person per household with crucial digital literacy skills by 2020”. In this regard, Pro Sport Development (PSD) has partnered with PRIA (Participatory Research in Asia) to work with young people between the ages of 15-18 years to build their digital literacy skills for meaningful actions in life situations, using the mediums of smartphones and Kho-Kho.

In the initial phase of the project, supported by the Laureus Innovation Fund, PSD is assisting PRIA in the curriculum development and testing for the project as well as in-house training of facilitators.
