Details about Sundar Pichai’s promotion of a group that offers resources for education to young Indian women
An organisation in India called SwaTaleem educates historically underrepresented girls between the ages of 10 and 18. Google stated in a blog post that co-founder Ananya Tiwari is committed to assisting women in India who want to access education, connect with technology, get over language obstacles, and achieve financial freedom.
The work of the Google Impact Challenge for Women and Girls has motivated the organisation.
A $25 million pledge has been made to fund organisations worldwide that support girls and women as part of the Impact Challenge for Women and Girls.
Girls can become more engaged by using an interactive voice response system over a phone line. Users can also turn on the speakers on their phones so that their family members can learn from the sessions as well.
The organisation keeps a close eye on participant comments.
According to Google, early challenges for the organisation included dealing with the several translations and regional accents. “At first, SwaTaleem field staff members gathered student input using handwritten notes in their native tongues, and they then had to figure out how to translate them. Using the Accelerator, SwaTaleem tested an NLP solution with a group of Google employees, enabling the team to use voice recordings as a substitute to produce automated translations. This technology will assist the team in spending less time on data collecting and translation and more time building relationships with the young women they serve as SwaTaleem hopes to scale this experiment in the future, the blog post notes.
Thus far, the organisation has assisted around a thousand young women.
