Laxmi’s village of Gairsen has various institutes that claim to teach computers. They have the equipment and infrastructure to adequately suit the needs of students. What they don’t have, however, are teachers.
“The lack of well-trained teachers in technical institutes is a major hurdle for budding students of rural areas, especially for girls. People of Gairsen village are very open to having their daughters educated, but they are uncomfortable sending them away for their studies. Thus, the boys can easily pursue technical education in other towns and cities, but girls do not have that option.” says Laxmi.
