The Target area  Islampur block of Nalanda Dist., Bihar (India) is one of the backward blocks in Bihar. More than 40% fall below the poverty line and poverty is aggravated by low literacy rates, high unemployment, and large family size. The schedule is for the underprivileged section of society. They have very less or negligible land holding and fulfill two square meals by labour work of any kind.

In terms of economic parameters, Bihar’s backwardness refers to its per capita income being the lowest in India and it has been so for the last four decades. On the social front too, Bihar lags far behind the other states and the starting point of its social backwardness is its poor educational status.

In the context of the status of women, lack of social development, particularly in the field of education, insulates a society from all ideas of modernity, including gender equality. The work participation rate for women here is 18.8 percent (nation 25.6). The lower WPR for women is partly due to the backwardness of its economy where employment opportunities are limited or even some cultural traits of the region, but the lower literacy and health standards of the women are equally behind their lower economic role.

Due to a lack of employment opportunities poor are compelled to migrate to big cities or brick factories.  Here they have to lead a pathetic livelihood. Women are targeted for violence and discrimination not just because of their gender but also on the basis of their caste, community, religious affiliation, and other factors.

For there to be driving digital innovation and greater gender equality, it is essential to continue to explore opportunities and constraints, to enable women and girls to have a voice and participate in digital decision-making on an equal footing.

A gender-responsive approach to innovation, technology, and digital education can increase the awareness of women and girls regarding their rights and civic engagement. Equal participation of women in digital, economic, political, social, and cultural fields is very important for building an egalitarian society.


  • To ensure equal rights for women to make them digitally confident so that they can live their life with self-respect and dignity.
  • To provide women and girls with an opportunity to be self-conscience and digitally equipped.
  • To strengthen the forum for discussion on women’s participation in the digital dividend in balancing gender equality.
  • To minimize gender inequality in society.
  • To improve the family income level.

Problem Statement

Youth including females are the very potential group, they are also literate up to 10-12th std. but due to a lack of skill and opportunity, they are compelled to work labour work or migrate to other cities where they face a series of physical as well as mental exploitation. There is lacking industry or small-scale industries where youth can get employment. In such a way, they also lose inner potential and confidence. Govt. has started skill training for poor youth i.e. computer skill training etc., but they are not enrolled in skill training programs due to ignorance, unawareness, and lack of information and coordination.
