Empowering rural women through ICT in TVET




In India, women from rural communities often have little say in family and community decision-making. Skills development is a recognized medium of empowerment. However, access to TVET remains a challenge to a majority of those living in rural India. With the goal of empowering women, AMMACHI Labs offers a programme that uses innovative approaches and modern technology to overcome the obstacles rural women face in terms of access to TVET. In addition to developing in-demand vocational skills for the labour market (such as plumbing and fabric painting), life skills courses called Life Enrichment Education (LEE) are integrated into the training. LEE focuses on personal, family and community issues, and stimulates critical thinking and problem solving. AMMACHI Labs also deploys a Mobile Vocational Education (MoVe) van, which is equipped with ICT tools for education. As of 2017, the programme is active in 27 villages in 21 states. The programme has provided thousands of women with practical skills that have enhanced their earning potential and increased their capacity to participate in decision-making at the individual, family and community levels.
