Google is Helping Women Get Online in India

Google India aims bring 50 Million Women Online by empowering women from all walks of life with the right resources.  India has over 200 million Internet users and the number is growing. India is on its way to become the second largest Internet market overtaking US. But, only one-third or about 60 million of the online users are women.

Google India has partnered with brands to create awareness about the benefits of Internet for women, educate them to use Internet to improve their lives and enable easy access points across the country. Internet can help women achieve self esteem, open up new opportunities and help them to gain education.

You can check out the step-by-step guide to help everyone use the internet- your mom, your neighbor, your aunt or just someone else you know whose life could improve with the internet.

It has also started a toll-free helpline number '1800 41 999 77' to help women get answers for their Internet-related queries.
