Women Empowerment Skills aim to achieve, create and contribute to Improved employment / self employment opportunities for young girls and women between the age of 18 to 24 years.


Young Girls between 18 yeras to 24 years from disadvantaged communities face barriers in joining the formal economy -- lack of quality education, skills, social confidence, communication and language problems and often issues with grooming and etiquette and also parental pressure to marry and keep house, to community pressure to only take 'respectable jobs' and limitations on being allowed to travel 'too far' from the family home.


Setu shall be offering Courses from the NIIT Foundation in Basic IT Skills enabling the first step towards employability. This course shall enable a respectable, much sought after and prestigious career for such young girls; not only does it provide a decent salary, but also fits in with raising a family and provides her with status in her community. We aim to enroll and train 400 young women at our Nithari Campus Noida in 2012 and this is where you could make the difference.

Long-Term Impact

The Program seeks to achieve the empowerment of the masses by: Taking Digital Literacy to the under served and unreached. Building IT as an enabler for the grassroots. Building a strong foundation to reap benefits of Information & Communications Technology later in their life. This shall help the Young Women seek employment and provide financial support to their families.
