Hyderabad: Local IT body HYSEA on Tuesday organised the third annual Hysea CSR summit and CSR Award 2018, in the city. During the summit HYSEA (Hyderabad Software Enterprise Association) announced that with association of Telangana government, and under their CSR signature initiative, they are coming forward with Disruptive Digital Intervention (DDI) project.
“DDI is a digital mission towards providing under-privileged students from the government high schools with computer education. Digital labs worth Rs 20 lakh each will be set up in selected five government schools, in rural and urban Telangana,” said Ranga Pothula, president, HYSEA.
Another initiative in process by the local industry body is to set up an IT Museum in the city. The museum will be a collective space for artifacts related to the IT industry covering nearly two decades of change in technology. The past, present and future trends depicting IT industry will be showcased in the IT museum, the first phase of the plan will take more than six months to complete, added Ranga Pothula.
The summit focused on how to make great contributions and bring changes in the lives of local communities by doing voluntary work. “Businesses cannot be successful when the society around them fails. Our forum reflects the strong sense of the industry to give back to the people and the society we live in,” Bharani Aroll, Secretary, HYSEA, said.
Talking about rural India where the actual problems lies, Anshu Gupta, Founder, Goonj & Ramon Magsaysay Award Winner, said: “Begging is not seen in villages but instead begging is a city phenomenon and our country suffers more due to non-issues than the issues. We must look beyond fake data and understand that GDP alone cannot be a sign of progress in our country.”
