India has the one of the world's largest digital gender gaps. To help make sure women don't get left behind, the Google team in India launched the Internet Saathi program.

 In April 2016, we travelled to India to research and document the program. We learned that women in rural India are the heart of the home and the nexus of their communities.  We also observed that, when a woman gets online, it causes a ripple effect with benefits to many.

 To tell the story of the initiative, we spent time with one Internet Saathi in particular and documented her impact on her community.  The hero of our film (watch below) is a woman named Bujji, from a small village in Andhra Pradesh.
