There were many small scale computer training centres and internet café in Muzaffarabad city before the earthquake.  Theses centres were providing some basic training in computer skills and access to internet. While in public sector AJK University was providing higher courses in computer sciences.  The opportunities  for computer education and internet access were limited even before the earthquake of Oct. 8, 2005 which has destroyed the educational infrastructure almost completely. This led to the situation where the need of developing computer literacy is even more. As the literacy rate in Azad Kashmir is 78% and unemployment is 25 to 50%. The empowerment of   literate by training them in IT skills will improve the quality of the education they have already received and will open more job opportunities in rehabilitation phase of disaster.
