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.

Oral health promotion through schools

Why is oral health important ?

Poor oral health can have a detrimental effect on children’s performance in school and their success in later life. Children who suffer from poor oral health are 12 times more likely to have more restricted-activity days including missing school than those who do not. More than 50 million hours annually are lost from school due to oral diseases. While tooth decay (dental caries) and gum disease (inflammatory periodontal disease) are among the most prevalent or widespread conditions in human populations, other conditions such as trauma of teeth and jaws, dental erosion, developmental enamel defects and oral cancer are also important. Premature loss of deciduous (milk) teeth may lead to malalignment of the permanent (adult) teeth, impacting on an individual’s appearance. Importantly, tooth loss can affect children’s nutritional intake and, consequently, their growth and development.

 

There are also important links between oral health and general health. For example, gum disease is associated with general health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Similarly, those with complex health problems are sometimes at greater risk of oral diseases that, in turn, further complicate their overall health. Some diseases of the mouth and oral lesions may be the first signs of some life threatening diseases, such as HIV/AIDS.

Why focus efforts through schools ?

The school provides an ideal setting for promoting oral health. At the global level, approximately 80% of children attend primary schools and 60% complete at least four years of education, with wide variations between countries and gender. In some countries, more than 50% of children aged 7 to 14 years are out of school and less than 20% complete the first grade due to exploitation of child labour. Nonetheless, schools remain an important setting, offering an efficient and effective way to reach over 1 billion children worldwide and, through them, families and community members.

Schools can provide a supportive environment for promoting oral health.More importantly, schools may be the only place for children, who are at the highest risk of dental disease, to have access to oral health services. This is particularly true in many developing countries, compounded by a lack of dental personnel. With adequate training, school teachers can play an important role in oral health activities.

Trinity Care Foundation Oral Health Program supports oral health promotion and dental disease prevention in school-based programs for students in low-income schools from 1st standard through 10 standard [ 6 yrs to 16 yrs].
