Women Technology Parks (WTP): Are envisaged to act as a resource centre where all necessary support is made available to women from a single platform for providing training, capacity building in various technologies, providing livelihood opportunities and improving the quality of life of the women by reducing their drudgery, better resource management through value addition, etc.

 

As per the UN-Women reports (From Insight to Action) due to COVID-19 pandemic the gender and economic inequalities have widened, more women have lost their jobs or businesses as a result of COVID-19 (25 per cent of women vs. 21 per cent of men). Women are typically paid less and more vulnerable to losing their jobs in the present circumstances.

 

The aim of this call is to attain local self reliance of women for economic re-growth during Post COVID-19 scenario. Preference will be given to areas rural and peri-urban areas( districts, blocks) in states like Jharkhand, Odisha, Bihar, Chhatisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, North-Eastern states and aspirational districts having sizable population of reverse migrant women, who have gone to their native villages and would like to empower through Women Technology Parks.
