Tech And IT Services Firm Vee Technologies Sets Up Computer Centre For Salem Prison Inmates

* Sona College of Technology faculty to make 200 computer literate

Bengaluru-New York headquartered Tech and IT services firm Vee Technologies has set up a computer training centre for Salem Prison inmates. The computer centre with 25 desktop computers with personal computing software was thrown open in Salem on Saturday evening.

As part of its community engagement initiative the company has partnered with NIRF-ranked Sona College of Technology to nominate its faculty from Computer Science and IT departments to train 200 inmates of the Salem Central Jail, initially.

The Sona College of Technology faculty has drawn up the basic computer literacy skills training program for the first four weeks. Subsequently it will identify, from among nearly 1000 prison inmates, those with knowledge of computers and enlist them for the ‘Train the Trainers’ program and train them to be the trainers for the rest of the inmates.

“The Salem Prison, set up in 1862, is focused on giving a boost to the reformation efforts. Once the basic computer literacy goal is achieved, we would encourage the inmates to create their official applications to the Judiciary and Prison officials,” said Mr T. Tamil Selvan, Prison Superintendent, Central Prison, Salem.

“Our next step will be to identify a few computer literate inmates and engage them in training the rest,” he added while thanking Vee Technologies and Sona College of Technology for investing their time to train the inmates.

Mr Chocko Valliappa, Founder and CEO, Vee Technologies said, “The Sona Valliappa group computer skills centre was born out of our strong belief that the prison inmates deserve help to undergo reformation for easy social integration.”

“The teams at the Vee Technologies and Sona College of Technology faculty are committed to make this Computer Literacy Centre a model centres among all prisons in Tamil Nadu,” Mr Valliappa added.

These skills will facilitate the social integration and reformation process initially for the inmates due for release in the next few months. The computer skills can be used in their post-prison personal life in trade, business or profession or enhance their job prospects with the additional skills in computers.
