Insight organized a five-day workshop on the basics of computer for 13 physically challenged individuals at Uzhamalakkal. The workshop that was held at Uzhamalakkal grama panchayat began on 26 September 2011. Uzhamalakkal is a remote village in Thiruvananthapuram district and has few facilities to access computers. Insight’s attempt to acquaint the differently abled in the village with computers was well received as evidenced by the hospitality the villagers offered to the Insight team. The workshop concluded on 30 September 2011 with a humble closing ceremony chaired by the grama panchayat president Smt. Lathika Kumari.
