World Computer Literacy Day: Why is it celebrated on December 2?

World Computer Literacy Day was launched by Indian computer company NIIT to mark its 20th anniversary in 2001, in response to research which suggested that the majority of computer users around the world were men.

The day aims to “create awareness and drive digital literacy in underserved communities worldwide”.
