Gandhi Institute of Computer Education
& Information Technology
Education must be a great equalizer in our society. It must be the tool to level the differences that our various social systems have created over the past thousands of years.
Educating youth for better job opportunities and enable them to achieve economic empowerment is the vision for establishing Gandhi Institute.
Today, computer literacy is a must for any young person aspiring for a job. In the nineties of the previous century such exposure was given by many institutes purely on commercial basis. Young people, particularly from the economically weaker sections, could not afford such training and were therefore unable to get the available jobs because of lack of computer skills. To address this situation the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan (BVB) launched the Bhavan’s Gandhi Institute of Computer Education and Information Technology (BGI), thanks to a generous donation. The first BGI centre was launched in Mumbai on July 23, 1996 by Dr. Manmohan Singh (then Finance Minister and at present the Prime Minster of India).
BGI was established in 1996 under the aegis of the BVB one of the largest NGOs in the world, with a mission to serve the society. The BVB has been propagating the great values and traditions of our culture and while doing so has not lost sight of the current social milieu.
