“My father has a small shop in Delhi. He used to send us Rs 3,000 every month which was not enough for us. I always wanted to economically support my family but I was not educated enough. Last year, during a door-to-door advertising of Aga Khan Rural Support Program (AKRSP), India-’computerji jode duniya se’, I got to know about Microsoft’s project ‘Jyoti’ that train people with computer skills on nominal fee,” according to Hina.
