Bharti Airtel has entered into a partnership with the Madhya Pradesh government to roll out one of its Digital India Week initiatives.
Under the partnership, the company rolled out 'E-Shakti', a scheme to build Internet awareness and literacy among women in Madhya Pradesh.
"Internet has the potential to transform society into a strong, prosperous & progressive ecosystem. The increased adoption of Internet among women of Madhya Pradesh would help bridge the digital divide," says Bharti Airtel CEO for MP and Chhattisgarh Vir Inder Nath.
A training session was also conducted at the launch for over 300 girl students.
The training module, which includes elementary knowledge on Internet, looks to empower women by equipping them with an operating knowledge on Internet.
The first phase will be conducted across six districts of Madhya Pradesh - Bhopal, Dewas, Gwalior, Damoh, Dhar and Satna.
