‘250 million people need to be skilled by 2020’
How did AISECT come about?
In the early 1980s, IT was becoming a powerful technological tool in cities, having the potential to change people’s lives altogether. However, 80% of India’s population was oblivious to the progress and advancement of urban India and the rest of the developed world in this field. So, my father Santosh Kumar Choubey, along with a few like-minded people, formed AISECT in 1985 with the intent of reaching out to the remotest corner of India to promote ICT-based training and services to empower people, generate employment and unfold entrepreneurship-based initiatives to create an inclusive society.
What is your vision?
Out vision is to harness the power of IT for the benefit of the less privileged population. AISECT is primarily engaged in the areas of skill development and training, development of models and teaching methodologies to strengthen the non-formal education sector, services dissemination across semi-urban and rural India and execution of large e-governance projects for the central and state governments.
