Google India’s Internet Saathi programme has now been extended to the states of Punjab and Odisha. The programme aimed at empowering rural women to use the Internet has now reached 260,000 villages across 20 states in the country.

Launched as a pilot project in 2015 along with Tata Trusts, Internet Saathi focuses on educating women how to use the Internet, who then impart training to other women in their community and neighbouring villages.

So far, around 70,000 women have been trained to use the Internet to drive positive change in their communities.

In Punjab, the programme will cover around 5,000 villages. Meanwhile, in Odisha, it will cover over 16,000 villages.
