The Digital Learning Centres, set up by Plan India in collaboration with Ericsson, utilise technology solutions to provide a quality education to young women in the age group of 15-25 years within their own communities, thereby overcoming the challenge of limited mobility.

The project aims to benefit more than 15,000 young women over the next three years by making learning and skill development affordable and available to them in a safe and convenient environment.
