The 'Digital Empowerment Libraries Initiative' by Get Set Go had aimed to secure support from Hero Motocorp for the establishment of 10 state-of-the-art digital libraries across the rural areas of Jaipur. This ambitious project was dedicated to bridging the digital divide, offering rural youth unprecedented access to modern computers and a wealth of digital learning resources including online educational courses. The objective was not just to provide tools, but to empower young minds for a brighter future by providing them educational resources digitally within their vicinity.
UIL had been commissioned to craft a meticulous and comprehensive grant proposal. This proposal articulated the project's core objectives, planned activities, expected outputs, and the transformative impact it sought to achieve. Integral to this document were the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), alongside a robust Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework, developed using the logical framework (logframe) approach. This methodical approach ensured clarity in objectives and measurable outcomes.
The proposal encompassed a detailed design of each digital library, including a complete Bill of Quantities, precise specifications of the technology and infrastructure required, and a thorough financial estimate. This level of detail provided a clear picture of the project’s scale and its resource needs. A clearly defined work plan was a cornerstone of this project. It outlined specific timelines, deliverables, and payment milestones. This plan ensured that every phase of the project was executed efficiently, transparently, and effectively, aligning with the project's overarching goals and timelines.
