Lenovo has launched a digital centre in India as part of its Work For Humankind project. The centre, situated at the IHRD College of Applied Science in Kanthalloor, was inaugurated by Advocate A Raja, MLA, and P T Mohandas, Panchayat President. The goal of the 'Lenovo digital centre for Kanthalloor Millets' is to provide farmers with crucial information and best practices in millet farming.

The initiative by Lenovo, known as ‘Work For Humankind,’ aims to revive Millet cultivation in Kanthalloor, Kerala, using technology. Millets, referred to as 'Sree Anna' by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, align perfectly with the objectives of the project. They offer a pathway to prosperity for small farmers, provide nutritional benefits, support tribal communities, promote sustainable farming practices, and more.

The project volunteers will focus on providing digital access to government programs and millet cultivation methods, analyzing data to assess the impact of solutions, and raising awareness among local stakeholders.

This intervention addresses the challenge of the 'digital divide' in the region and improves technological access for the community. The digital centre is equipped with various Lenovo devices such as ThinkPad, Yoga, Motorola Edge, and tablets, along with access to services like Lenovo's CO2 Offset Service and cloud solutions.

Advocate A Raja, MLA, expressed his pride in Kanthalloor being chosen for the project and urged the farming community to support and cooperate for its success. Shailendra Katyal, Managing Director of Lenovo India, highlighted the company's commitment to bridging the digital divide through the Work for Humankind initiative.

The Lenovo digital centre integrates advanced technology, solutions, and services to empower farmers and enhance millet cultivation, aiming to make it both scalable and sustainable.
