Trivandrum: Kapil, Sai, Yogesh, Pawan, Vinay, Sachin and Jay are a group of bloggers on an all India tour, with a mission to spread digital awareness. The team called ‘All India Digital Skill Mission’ started its journey on January 15, 2016 from Srinagar and hope to finish on March 15 at New Delhi, after covering more than 20,000 kms across the length and breadth of the country.
After covering over 7,000 kms and 20+ cities and a large number of smaller towns and villages, the team was in Kerala for the last four days with stopovers at Kozhikode, Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram before moving on to Kanyakumari. On their way, they also had 15+ college events and Blogger Meets wherever possible including one in Kochi. In the capital city, the team had an interactive session with the students of K V Pattom.
Interacting with Kerala IT News, Kapil Anand, Team Leader and also founder, IIPDS said, “We were inspired by two flagship programmes initiated by Government of India – the National Skill Development Mission and the Digital India programme. Our aim is to create awareness about Internet based career openings, digital opportunities and cyber security, among other things, especially in smaller places. We are about half way through our mission and so far, the response has been overwhelming.”
The key members of the mission are well-known bloggers, digital marketing trainers and consultants. One thing which brings them together is their passion to reach as many people as they can to impart and share this skilful knowledge of earning money through Internet. Most importantly, to provide a platform to everyone which can be used for giving back to the community. The two months tour is completely self funded.
