The ratio of internet users in India for women is not much praise-worthy. Today only 15% of Internet users in rural India are women as per the iCube 2016 report. The Internet is badly needed for empowering women in India. The good news is that Tata Trusts and Intel launch an Internet literacy campaign for rural women in India.
Tata Trusts, with its well-spread ground NGOs network, will manage the on-ground rollout with its partners whereas Google will invest in providing the Internet-enabled Carts and the training content.
The persuasive will kick off with 1000 such carts starting from Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Jharkhand and will be rolled out across the country eventually reaching out to over 4500 villages and counterpane 5 lakh women across rural India over the next eighteen months. Since the launch of this initiative, Google has directly trained over 1.5 million women on the basics of the Internet.
