Guwahati, Oct. 5. Tezpur -- The Don Bosco Social and Technical Institute (DBSTI) at Tezpur in Sonitpur District of Assam launched its first computer lab in less than two months after its inauguration 16 August at a simple inaugural ceremony.
Some 20 computers have been set up with the assistance of director of On-Line Education at Assam Don Bosco University's DBU global Fr Xavier Mattom, 3 October 2014.
''We have used n-computing system for the computer lab. It not only brings down networking costs but also gives computer access to a large number of people,'' explained Fr Mattom who personally purchased the computers and set up the network.

The director of DBSTI Fr Cletus explained, ''This computer lab will help us to offer training and reach out to more young people with the motto: Skilling Youth, Transforming Lives.''

He added, ''This computer lab will help us run short term programs in Office Management, Tally, Excel and other soft-wares, to the needy and marginalized youth to shape their destiny.''

The day also witnessed the launch of the first batch of one-day School Principals Effectiveness Program, for a group of 35 principals and senior teachers of MSMHC Sisters of Tezpur province.

A team of three Salesians are assisting Fr Cletus, namely Fr. Alex Kattakayam, the Associate Director who is engaged in Conflict Management and Peace Initiatives, Research and Publications; Bro. Edward Kujur, is skills trainer, and lawyer Fr. Rajendra Ekka is Legal Aid Consultant and offers legal awareness programs for the poor and marginalized youth.
