World Computer Literacy Day was launched by Indian computer company NIIT to mark its 20th anniversary in 2001. This was in response to research which suggested that the majority of computer users around the world were men. It occurs annually on 2 December, and is intended to encourage the development of technological skills, particularly among children and women in India. In its own words, it aims to “create awareness and drive digital literacy in underserved communities worldwide”. Though computers have become commonplace in our futuristic world, computer literacy day reminds us to contribute our quota towards making computers accessible and easy to understand for those who may struggle with innovation. GD Goenka Public School, Rohini, Sector 9 observes the World Computer Literacy Day.
