To sensitise those in the middle and the upper income group about the problems of the downtrodden. To persuade the “haves” to help the deprived brethren in the society and around them in whatever manner possible.

Free Computer Schools have been set up by Nandini Voice at the following centers in Tamil Nadu for the benefit of the deprived and disabled boys and girls and those belonging to the lower income group, who have passed +2 examination.

Free Computer School provides training in basic computer operations such as MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), d-Base, FoxPro, Pagemaker-5, CorelDraw, Tally 7.2, DTP, Internet, e-mail, web browsing. Tests and examinations are conducted after the completion of the course based on which certificates are provided.

Duration of the course is six months or more, depending upon the progress made by the individual students. Since students come from different background, the progress are being monitored very carefully and periodical tests are conducted before the students would be asked to sit for final examination.

Placement services are also provided to the students who successfully complete the Computer course. So far more than 1400 students have completed the course successfully during the last six years from various centres of Nandini Computer Schools and job placement services have been provided to most of them.
