Bridging the online gender divide in rural India
In 2015 Tata Trusts and Google came together to address one of the largest online gender disparities in rural India. They introduced a digital literacy program, based on a ‘train the trainer’ model. Women from villages are trained on using the Internet and are equipped with data-enabled devices. Known as “Internet Saathis” these women work as trainers, to help other women in their village to get started on their Internet journey and benefit from it.
