28 year old Chithra belongs to Pudducherry. Extremely weak eyesight caused due to genetic defect made her drop out of school after 9th standard. She couldn’t even do any household chores and most of her time would go sitting idle. She started making Gajras at home to pass her time and earn some money too. Her life was nearly standstill till one day she learnt through her friends living next-door about the CIRC opened in her locality. Chithra desired to learn computers, but was unsure if she would be able to do so with her weak eyesight. But she decided to give it a shot. Chithra’s mother was initially reluctant to send her daughter to CIRC, but finally agreed on the condition that her friends Nandhini and Deepa would accompany her to the centre. Within few weeks, she learnt working on various computer applications, like Paint and MS Office. She can now save files and change desktop background. Centre staff makes extra effort to make computer learning convenient and enjoyable for Chithra. This includes enlarging computer icons so that she can work with ease. She is also very active on social media and has a Facebook account that she uses to chat and connect with her friends and family. In future, Chithra would like to teach computer to her mother as well.
