GSMA , Reliance Jio launch  Digital Skills Program for Women

Reliance Jio and the GSM Association in India have collaborated to launch a nationwide Digital Skills Program. The program’s goal is to give need-based training to rural women and people from low-income families. It is part of the larger GSMA Connected Women Commitment initiative.

Reliance Jio and London-based telecom group the GSM Association (GSMA) have launched a nationwide Digital Skills Program in India as part of the GSMA Connected Women Commitment programme.

The initiative is now being implemented in ten states, with an emphasis on reaching women and underrepresented populations. The Reliance Foundation will aid in the deployment through its extensive network of self-help organisations, particularly in rural regions. Jio and the GSMA have stated that the initiative would be expanded over the coming several months.

Women in India are 41% less likely than males to utilise mobile internet, according to the GSMA’s Mobile Gender Gap Report 2022.

In India, 330 million women do not utilise mobile internet, compared to 248 million males. One of the most commonly mentioned hurdles to mobile internet adoption is a lack of literacy and computer abilities.

As part of this effort, the GSMA and Jio teams collaborated to identify existing digital skill shortages and build India-specific digital skills training toolkits. According to the Jio statement, over 1,000 rural women and men from Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu participated in the testing phase and offered input for the refining of the digital training toolkits.
