Transformative Agenda

Transformative Agenda

Creating a knowledge-led economy and knowledge-based societies in the world is a key to survival and development of people in the emerging knowledge era.

MKCL believes that there exists a great potential in our society to emerge as a knowledge-led economy due to its large but latent talent pool of young population. The challenge exists, however, in transforming its predominantly agrarian or industrial economy into a new knowledge-led economy by developing its talent pool in right direction.

This transformation can be accomplished by imbibing a culture of life-long learning in the society at large. Life-long learning of such a highly populous and developing society can be sustained only if knowledge resources can be made available and accessible to the masses at affordable costs anytime and anywhere. A pervasive and appropriate use of Information Technology alone can sustain the life-long learning in the Indian context and bring the new actionable knowledge within the reach of all sections of the society as IT and Internet do not only provide a transformative medium of dissemination of knowledge but also form a platform for generation of almost 90% of our actionable knowledge resources. Bridging the Digital Divide thus becomes the prime agenda for socio-economic transformation in pole vaulting to the knowledge society and knowledge-led economy. The severe threat of marginalization of the masses emerging from the Digital Divide and resultant Knowledge Divide and moreover the Opportunity Divide can be effectively averted through mass IT Literacy Mission. Only an IT Literate society can enjoy a greater share of global knowledge resources, business opportunities and global job opportunities.

MKCL is an entrepreneurial endeavor to bridge this Digital Divide and the resultant Knowledge Divide and Opportunity Divide by offering actionable knowledge and essential services to masses for socio-economic transformation.

MKCL’s synthesis of a new paradigm of transformation is to offer education, governance and empowerment solutions and services :

  • to a very large population with various diversities : Bigger
  • with high quality of relevance and applicability in life and work : Better
  • at an affordable cost : Cheaper
  • within a shortest possible time : Faster
  • with a wide accessibility from metros to villages : Wider
  • in a mass-personalized manner : Deeper personal experience

MKCL is attempting to address these six challenges simultaneously through the pervasive and appropriate use of IT and through its unique public-private-community partnership network.

MKCL is thus attempting to help lay the foundations of knowledge society so critical for the survival, development and empowerment of the masses in general and youth in particular.
