When a Woman Decides, She makes a mountain move- A kid in her lap and a tablet in her hand and Now She is able to manage everything.

These women are the Tablet Didis of Jharkhand. These rural women who never ever touched a cellphone are now operating tablets.

A Large number of women from villages across Jharkhand are now using tablets to record financial activities of their Self help groups (SHGs).

Now tablet has become the identity of these rural women, who are known as Tablet Didis in their villages and nearby areas. Uma, one of the Tablet Didis said “Once this tablet, which was like a wonder to me, is now my strength”.

Now, I am the ‘Tablet Didi’ of my village”. These rural women are from the remotest villages of Jharkhand – they are change makers. First they came out of abject poverty after joing SHG under Livelihood Mission and now they are working for poverty alleviation in Jharkhand.

The role of these Tablet Didis is very important as they are capturing data and transactions of each meeting of SHGs. Due to ground work of Tablet Didis, anyone can check the details of any SHG meeting of any remote village of Jharkhand on real time.

They are earning through this and most of the women are bread earners of their own families. This is a powerful step towards digitization seeking to alleviate poverty, encourage economic and social growth and bridge the perceived ‘digital divide’.

This initiative is not only bringing a change in the society but also helping rural poor women to acquire new skills and capacities which allows them to create many more avenues for their livelihood.

Tablet Didis are enabling women to dream with a smile, and working towards fulfilling the mission of Digital India.
