Rehabilitating Banchhada community girls with Digital Literacy'
Leaving the mucky trade of prostitution is not easy, but for women from the Banchhada tribe in Madhya Pradesh, they have started changing their fate. Thanks to PradhanMantriGramin Digital SakshartaAbhiyan (PMGDISHA)and CSC. Running a Common Service Centre is not just a business. It is also a social service. A group of five Village-Level Entrepreneurs and the District Manager Bharat Nagar from Mandsaur and Neemuch have proved that.

They took initiative to impart digital literacy training under PMGDISHA to Banchhada tribe girls and women, who were into flesh trade.

“We conducted an awareness campaign on PMGDISHA focussing the community girls. They were told about the benefits of technology and how it will transform their life,” said the District Manager.

More than 50 women apart from men got enrolled and started the training as part of the programme.

“After certification, we are also planning to rehabilitate Banchhada tribe women by helping them to set up a CSC centre. They will be working as a CSC VLE,” Bharat added.

The district administration, anganwadi workers and other authorities have joined hands with CSC team for the novel initiative. .
