My name is Alok Kamat and I am a student of class 4. My father works as a driver and my mother is a homemaker. I joined Juana foundation about an year ago, my father was the one who encouraged me to join the foundation for Project Nawal and then I was promoted to Navya Student empowerment programme (NSEP)
I was associated with the Project Nawal during the lockdown. I have had a major loss with my studies during the lockdown but since when I have joined the Foundation, I have learnt a lot about computer, its uses and about the internet. My one-year journey with the foundation has been very beneficial to me as it helped me to bridge the gap between me my studies which was there due to lockdown. I feel happy to be a part of Juana Foundation as it helped me to understand what I want and now I can proudly say that, I wish to become a scientist when I grow up and serve our country.
My name is Kiran and I am currently studying in class 8th. I am a single child and my parents have several dreams and expectations with me. I enjoy studying and learning new things. I got associated with Juana foundation with the help of my neighbor and I joined the foundation in August 2020. Within very little time I have learnt a lot about computers and Internet which was quite impossible to learn in school. Before lockdown I used to go to school but my studies were affected due to it, but being a part of Navya Student Empowerment Program (NSEP) of the foundation I have been benefited a lot, as I got to know so much about how to access virtual classroom platform and also the importance of privacy while accessing the online information. I teach my younger siblings what I learn with the help of the foundation and teachers. I aspire to become a teacher someday in the future and help the children who wants to learn and explore, because Juana Foundation has helped me understand the importance of Privacy and positive usage of internet.
My name is Khushi and I am a student of grade 2. My neighbor had informed me about Navya Student Empowerment Program (NSEP) by Juana Foundation and also helped me to get in touch with the foundation. My school is little away from my home but with the help of the foundation I am able to attend online classes for technology, under which I have learned about the use of computers and the importance of privacy while using internet. I feel grateful to be part of the program because it helped me to learn so much in so little time and also because I enjoy learning new things and Juana Foundation gave me an opportunity to not only learn new things but also helped me enhance my confidence. Now, I feel capable of speaking in front of other students too. My dream is to become a doctor and I will work really hard for the same.

One sunny morning, in the month of October, Swati Ma'am, Director, Juana foundation, breezed into our school premises and told our Principal, Pravrajika Jnanapranaji that her Foundation can help and form MS Team to train the teachers of R.K.S.M.Nivedita Vidyamandir and initiate them to incorporate Microsoft technology through innovative ways in pursuit of academic excellence.
All of us were excited and started attending the class very eagerly. Our introductory class was taken by Deborah D'Souza Ma'am and Swati Ma'am on 10th Oct,2020. Then there was no stopping.
Enterprising trainers, enthusiastic students(teachers) moved on to unfold the petals of Digital Literacy Programme .
We were and are fortunate to have wonderful and effective trainers like Jatin Sir, Rajeev Sir and Suraj Sir who guided us and cleared all our doubts with utmost patience, enlightened us about MIE program and made this an enriching learning experience for us. We enjoyed competing, learning and helping each other.
We have learnt how to form a Team, how to organize a Meet via calendar, how to share our screen, how to make Microsoft forms with distinct types of questions, class notebooks, assignments, uses of Microsoft Apps like Sway, Flipgrid, Microsoft planner along with many other computer skills that are integral to all areas of study and work.
Manisha Ma'am and Ruchi Ma’am, Project Managers were very co-operative polite and helpful.
We are thankful to Juana Foundation for this awesome experience.
