Lenovo with YUWA girls should develop a kind of GPS activated micro chip sticker, with an emergency press button, which could be stuck in the human body anywhere. This should be sold in market with properly maintained database. Anybody can immediately press this emergency button and can seek help from nearby police office. It will help all school & college kids and all women who feel insecure as well as it will help in tracing the people in case of accidents. And the most important it should be very cheap by price, so that everybody can buy this Micro-chip.

The idea is to utilize technology and business models to bring about a change. There are two parts:1st: instilling technical knowledge in the members of YUWA, and their communities through education in skills like money management and communication skills and teaching them the basics of computers.2nd:After gaining sufficient exposure, we teach them higher technical skills in whichever skill THEY choose to expertise in. The skills they choose is then honed by individuals ranging from students to professionals who, after a standardization test, can be inducted for teaching. We can start off with just programming and patchwork products. This means members choose their OWN upliftment.

As I read, in Jharkhand, 6 in 10 girls drop out of school, like rest of India. One of its causes is poor menstruation management. YUWA girls can be trained in making sanitary napkins with A.Muruganantham's cheap sanitary pads machine or reusable cloth pads by collaborating with NGOs in this field. This can be done as women Self Help Groups involving other women in HUTUP so that YUWA girls find time to study, play & work for menstruation hygiene awareness. Spreading their operation in adjoining areas will bring economic independence for HUTUP women & safe periods for girls and women.

Thus, coding is empowerment.

A football enthusiast, traveler, adventurist; have professionally worked in various roles- teacher, instructional designer, software developer, curriculum developer, game designer, learning assessments, policy research.
Premise- 1st generation learners struggle with basic academic skills like reading and comprehension (english and hindi). Considering that, the school curriculum lacks provisions and adequate support for these children on the fringe; teaching modules should be tailor-made to counter these challenges. Solution- Redesign curriculum around football. Football can be a crosscutting theme to learn language, math, science, social studies etc. The theory is that children learn faster if the new knowledge draws from their own experiences and interests. Based on this, a smooth academic learning progression can be created.

I will suggest YUWA girls , to open up a learning center at village, common, which will have desktops and internet. We will approach PSU's and other organizations to donate us used PC's in their organization for the same under CSR(Corporate Social responsibility). Old people can come over to give lessons about life and educated ones can take sessions based on their expertise at the center, hence we will land up making an diversified learning center. also Pervasive learning will add up the intellectual capital, people will learn from one another.

7 out of 10 rape victims in villages of Bihar and Jharkhand were women who had gone to defecate in open. I would like to launch "Sauch Samadhan", a sanitation awareness drive among the ‘YUVA’ girls. ‘Toilet on Wheels’ , a van with various lavatories and bathing room inbuilt, will reduce the burden on girls to defecate in open and will act as a medium through which sanitary pads can be distributed among them . This movement will make the young girls aware about menstruation and myths associated with it .
I'm a Final year MCA student of National Institute Of Technology, Agartala and a concerned and responsible citizen. I want to contribute my idea so that it can help YUWA girls.
YUWA girls can form a group among themselves and develop products in which they are good at, Example-: the groups can make products such as food, toys, crafts etc and sell it in the market and the profit earned can be distributed among the members. In this way they can earn a livelihood for themselves and can also employ other girls and hence can EMPOWER themselves and can become self independent.

Unfortunately our notoriety of an unsafe nation is complicit to our identity. My pitch is to train our women to do a job that’s dominated by our countrymen - DRIVE. There’s a dearth of lady drivers, around the clock, across the country. Using technology, women drivers should be groomed into making our country safe for every woman commuter, including themselves. This will make families feel safe, allowing their women to go to work and open up so many closed doors to freedom. I hope you’ll help me fuel this idea so that together we begin a promising journey to safety.
