About Internet Saathi

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 April 2019, there are more than 81,500 Internet Saathis who have helped over 28 million women learn about the Internet across 289,000 villages

From Digital Literacy to Digital-Based Economic Opportunities

As we expanded Internet Saathi, the one common factor we discovered across the country was the enterprising nature of the women in the villages and their passion for positive change. This inspired us to work on a model facilitating digital-based livelihood opportunities for the Internet Saathis along with digital literacy to enable them to continue their positive impact on their community.
