The Continued Learning Access Program is a result of HP India’s commitment to bridging the digital divide for communities where children and the youth have got cut off from schools and skill training because of Covid.
These are families from India’s economically weaker sections and low-income strata. It is no surprise that they have no digital device to support the school lessons for their children. To fill this gap, the CLAP initiative will provide computer devices to communities and schools by rotation while following distancing rules.
HP CLAP vehicles would be equipped with 120 computer devices, onboard laptop charging, QR Code and biometric scanning. Students can record their attendance through the biometric scan and the vehicle coordinator will assign them specific laptops for 1.5 hours. The students can go home and learn online or study offline from the in-built course content. After the period, the laptops would have to be returned and the vehicle would move to location 2 and so on. Each day, one vehicle would cover two locations, benefiting 240 students.
