Empowering Teachers in Rural India With Technology
Monkeys, power shortages, and cold conditions didn’t deter a team of VMware people and teachers in Northern India from integrating technology into the classroom. Earlier this year, a team of VMware people embarked on a Good Gigs Trek—the VMware Foundation’s leadership program—in collaboration with CARE India and Team4Tech. The goal of the trek was to advance the quality of education for girls through technology. The Good Gigs objective was twofold: increased digital literacy for the teachers, and hands-on leadership training for the VMware Good Gigs team.
