WHAT WE DO

Uddami - Punam Karna teaching

Uddami Computer Training Center (UCTC)

Our computer center provides free practical computer training.

The aim of Uddami is to teach skills that will empower the potential of youth and women from low-income communities in urban Kolkata so they can develop sustainable livelihoods.

We believe strongly in peer education - all staff are women who have graduated from Uddami and come from the same background as our students.
