With the completion of the Mumbai workshop on Jan 21, the ConnectIT series of 6 workshops for Maharashtra concluded. 235 participants from 157 NGOs attended IT training workshops organised by NASSCOM Foundation under the ConnectIT series. NGOs took advantage of these 4-day training workshops held in Pune, Nagpur, Sangli and Mumbai between Nov 2009 and Jan 2010. In the workshops held in a lab format, participants picked tips and tricks to use MS Office more effectively in their day to day operations. Sessions on the use of social media, moviemaking and presentations were a favourite with NGOs. GuideStar India reached out to more than 1700 NGOs across Maharashtra inviting them to take advantage of the free IT training workshops.
The next set of 6 workshops will be held in Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur from mid March onwards. The last set of 6 workshops in the series will be held in Orissa in 2010-11. NGOs are encouraged to register with GuideStar India for these workshops and take advantage of the IT training. For registrations, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do watch this space for more specific announcements regarding workshop dates.
