As part of its event Women Will, Google has come up with many initiatives for women in India.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has announced a $25 million impact fund, support for one million women 122 in rural India as well as a $500,000 grant along with NASSCOM.

The company has also announced the conclusion of its programme Internet Saathi for Women, along with Tata Trusts.

Equal opportunity

In a statement, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said when women have equal access to opportunity, all benefit from their perspectives, creativity and their expertise, and this is true all over the world. Yet, when it comes to accessing opportunity, deep inequalities persist.

“Building on the Internet Saathi program success, we’re making a new commitment to help 1 million women in rural villages in India to become entrepreneurs through business tutorials, tools, and mentorship,” said Sundar Pichai in a statement.

The $25 million grant will provide “nonprofits and social enterprises in India and around the world that are doing important work to help women and girls reach their full potential”. For the same, applications are open until April 10.

Search features

On the other hand, the NASSCOM grant aims to help 100,000 women workers in agriculture with digital and financial literacy training across Bihar, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh.

Google also said that it will be enabling women-led search features in its maps app. The features will help female entrepreneurs by enabling searches like “women-led” — “women-led restaurants,” “women-led clothing stores” etc.
