In 2015, only 1 out of every 10 Internet user in rural India was a woman. Tata Trusts and Google came together to address this huge gender gap and introduced a digital literacy program, based on ‘train the trainer’ model. Women from villages are trained on using the Internet and are made equipped with data-enabled devices. These women are known as Internet Saathis and work as trainers, to help other women in their village to get started on their Internet journey and benefit from it. As of January 2017, there are more than 36,000 Internet Saathis who have helped over 13.5 million women learn about the Internet across 130,000 villages.
