Pune: Pune City Connect and NASSCOM Foundation, supported by Pune Municipal Corporation, have joined hands for the ‘Digitise Pune’ initiative and launched the ‘Each One, Teach Ten’ volunteering campaign with the goal of enabling financial literacy for every Puneite.

In an event held in the city on Monday, representatives from over 20 city-based organisations pledged to volunteer for the creation of a  ‘digi-monetised’ society.

These companies combined, have a potential volunteer strength of over 1 lakh and form a formidable task force while more organisations are showing their interest to become a part of this massive movement.

The volunteers will be encouraged to train as many people as possible to use online transactions, e-wallets, UPI apps like BHIM, USSD and Aadhaar enabled transaction systems.
NASSCOM Foundation has also come out with a curriculum to aid the volunteers in the training process.

Pune City Connect and NASSCOM Foundation have already been running 20 digital literacy centres across the city and will soon include the financial literacy course curriculum in the overall digital literacy training programme.

The Pune Municipal Corporation will work with both Pune City Connect and NASSCOM Foundation to make the drive successful.

The launch of the initiative was attended by Municipal Commissioner Kunal Kumar, Dr Ganesh Natarajan, Chairman, Pune City Connect and Chairman, NASSCOM Foundation, Shrikant Sinha, CEO, NASSCOM Foundation and Ruchi Mathur, CEO, Pune City Connect.
