India executed yet another successful Volunteering event at one of the SDMC Primary Schools at Dwarka where close to 600+ students were covered through the “Hour Of Code” program along with a daylong fun filled and engaging events with teachers, HP Volunteers and school students.

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide.

The engagement not only saw the physical presence and contribution from HP employees as volunteers but select few also made personal contribution to the cause as well. The engagement program was organized by SARD which is a partner NGO working with HP primarily in the education space.
