Internet giant Google will launch a two-month Internet education campaign to reach around 5 lakh girls and women across Uttar Pradesh. The main theme of this campaign is to make them digitally literate.
The campaign was inaugurated in the presence of women's movement "Gulabi Gang" leader Sampat Pal.
"The two-month Helping Women Get Online campaign (HWGO) in Uttar Pradesh aims to create awareness about the benefits of Internet for women and assist them to get online through basic knowledge on how to use the Internet," Google marketing director Sandeep Menon told reporters.
"We strongly believe that Internet can benefit and transform the lives of women in Uttar Pradesh and India. With the launch of HWGO we aim to help over five lakh women and girls across Uttar Pradesh get digitally literate", he said.
Google will cover over 20 cities across the state and help women get online through road shows in residential areas and Internet training modules for girl students in educational institutes.
