Amit Kataria has successfully transformed the lives of many in his village Choma, in Gurgaon, by imparting computer
literacy and in the process, setting a precedent
After completing his tenth and twelfth standard exams outside his village since there weren’t adequate facilities in Choma, he realised that most villagers owned land and money but they had little or no literacy especially in computing. They were ignorant of the need for computer skills. “I found that this was the biggest need of my village and its future generations. That was when I decided to start a computer learning institute in my area,” says Amit.
With a vision to spreading computer literacy throughout India, especially in rural areas, Amit started his venture, Rose Computer Academy in 2007, when he was only 19 years of age.
Amit’s academy has so far trained 300 students from his village, offering courses such as Basic computing, Java, Graphic Designing, Tally, C++ and many others. His is the only academy in Palam Vihar, Gurgaon, which offers different kinds of computer courses under one roof, working 18 hours a day. Some of his students have also gone ahead and opened their own enterprises, while others have taken up jobs. Some start working at the academy itself. As Amit puts it, “Rose Academy is like the rose flower that spreads its fragrance everywhere.”
