The need for the Digital Beti program – to bridge the digital gender divide and provide opportunities to rural women.

Our Project

Digital Beti, a joint initiative of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s CSC Academy and Facebook, envisions to overcome the digital gender gap in India by training women from rural areas to become entrepreneurs, using digital tools. With necessary technological skills, they will be able to enhance their businesses and gain market access, thereby creating better opportunities for them and their communities.The program aims to train 5,000 Village Level Entrepreneurs on digital literacy, who in turn as MasterTrainers, will educate 250,000 rural entrepreneurs in over 3,000 villages across 10 Indian states.
