The Intel Foundation has granted a donation of US 60,000 (Rs.25 lakh) towards women's education and empowerment in India.
Intel has partnered with the Digital Empowerment Foundation, a New Delhi-based non-governmental organisation, to execute the fund in empowering women's education. The company will set up three Community Information Resource Centres at Dhanaulti (Uttarakhand), Ranchi (Jharkhand) and Kuppam (Andhra Pradesh). These centres will facilitate women's education and empowerment by providing them soft training skills and guidance in various aspects such as getting a commercial concern going. The centres will focus on developing skills and learning abilities among women and children by training them in English language, computer literacy and subject-based learning with digital tools.
