Computer Literacy Program by Trinity Care Foundation

In today’s world the knowledge of computer software or hardware is basic necessity for a lot of jobs. By making students from underprivileged sections of the society computer literate will mean making them competent and better suited for today’s job market or pursue higher studies. This will also improve their prospects of getting into a better job. We can therefore safely conclude- lack of basic computer skills can certainly be looked upon as a hindrance to an individual’s development.

It was really unfortunate to see these well deserving students from Govt. schools not having basic idea of computers, simply because they have never used computers. Though we could encourage every student to get some basic computer knowledge to at least keep in touch, this is far from reality as govt. schools does not have adequate C-lab facilities. Earlier the younger ones get familiar with computers, the better it will be for them to find out what lies out there.

Project Name/Title: Basic Computer Literacy Program for underprivileged Govt. school students in Bangalore, Karnataka.

Project Summary: To set-up a computer lab at Govt. Schools and enable computer usage / application exposure to underprivileged students in order to improve their skillset & employability. To equip the teachers of Govt. Schools with the basic skills in application of computer programs and software’s in implementing computer-assisted instruction across subjects and teachers act as facilitators of learning.

Major NCDs and their risk factors

Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), including heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung disease, are collectively responsible for almost 70% of all deaths worldwide. Almost three quarters of all NCD deaths, and 82% of the 16 million people who died prematurely, or before reaching 70 years of age, occur in low- and middle-income countries.

CVDs in India

The rise of NCDs has been driven by primarily four major risk factors: tobacco use, physical inactivity, the harmful use of alcohol and unhealthy diets. The epidemic of NCDs poses devastating health consequences for individuals, families and communities, and threatens to overwhelm health systems. The socioeconomic costs associated with NCDs make the prevention and control of these diseases a major development imperative for the 21st century.

NCDs in Urban India

WHO’s mission is to provide leadership and the evidence base for international action on surveillance, prevention and control of NCDs. Urgent government action is needed to meet global targets to reduce the burden of NCDs.

World No Tobacco Day 2019 : tobacco and lung health

The focus of World No Tobacco Day 2019 is on “tobacco and lung health.” The campaign will increase awareness on: the negative impact that tobacco has on people’s lung health, from cancer to chronic respiratory disease, the fundamental role lungs play for the health and well-being of all people. The campaign also serves as a call to action, advocating for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption and engaging stakeholders across multiple sectors in the fight for tobacco control.

Choose-Health-Not-Tobacco

Every year, on 31 May, WHO and global partners celebrate World No Tobacco Day (WNTD). In 2019, WNTD will focus on “tobacco and lung health”. Tobacco smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke increase the risk of contracting many diseases. For instance, active and passive smoking affect the health of people’s lungs in multiple ways:

  • Lung cancer: smoking is responsible for over two thirds of lung cancer deaths globally, and second-hand smoke increases the risk of developing lung cancer for non-smokers. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in most countries of the WHO European Region. Approximately 430 000 people died from lung cancer in the Region in 2018, and more than half a million new cases were diagnosed during that period. Quitting smoking reduces the risk of lung cancer: 10 years after quitting the risk falls to about half that of a smoker.
  • Chronic respiratory diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma: tobacco smoking is the leading cause of COPD, a condition that results in a painful cough and agonizing breathing difficulties. It also exacerbates asthma, which restricts activity and contributes to disability. According to the latest available data, 3.6% of total deaths in the European Region were due to COPD in 2017. Early smoking cessation is the most effective way of slowing the progression of COPD and improving asthma symptoms.

Furthermore, children exposed to second-hand smoke are at higher risk of developing frequent lower-respiratory infections and have a higher risk of suffering the onset and exacerbation of asthma, pneumonia and bronchitis. The link between tobacco smoking and tuberculosis (TB) is also well established, showing that the chemical components of tobacco smoke can trigger latent infections of TB. Smoking can also increase the risk of disability and death from respiratory failure in people with active TB.
