Navya Students Empowerment Program (NSEP)

About NSEP

Navya Students Empowerment Program is part of a parent project – Navya Empowerment Programs (NEPs) spread across areas of work. NSEP is a technology-based project which is open for all/any children between the age of 6-18 years of age and belonging to an underprivileged social and/or economic class. The premise and the primary theme of the project remains education – with a special focus on technological education & digital/computational skills.


A society where children and young adults of the underprivileged sections too attain the skills and ability of using technology for creating a sustainable life.


To mobilize students toward using technology as an alternate and/or combination (with conventional offline education) medium of education through intervention, support, training, and action.

Micro Goal

To bring students of the project to a point in technological training that their skills are at par with (or approaching fast toward) International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Students.

Macro Goal

To spread work in more than 10 locations in the first three years of its operation.

Project Concept

The project is based on skilling of students in technology through training and simultaneously using this progressing knowledge for conducting Online Classes for regular subjects (as applicable based on the students’ grade/class). Essentially, the project focuses on technological advancement of students based on ISTE Standards for Students.
