To make for better living conditions for older people in the country, a digital literacy program was held by Agewell Foundation, with support from Oracle, that lasted 3 months in Delhi in which over 1,500 senior citizens received free computer and internet training at Computer Training Centres set up across the city.

Agewell Progam received positive response from members of various senior citizens groups and associations and led to large number of old people from across Delhi queuing up to participate in the program. Agewell volunteers provided training on desktops, laptops, tabs and smartphones. This exercise has thrown up some interesting facts and among them is the fact that the elderly are as keen as the young ones in their desire to keep themselves connected with friends and families.
