Empowering women, breaking barriers

Two very bright and talented young girls - Anusha and Gayathri - are receiving training under this two-year Technical Assistant Program. An unconventional training program, especially for women, but very relevant to the current market needs, they are receiving training in: basic video shooting and editing, designing, managing and hosting Zoom webinars, logistics of managing the technical aspects of hosting events (virtual as well as physical), gamification using PowerPoint presentations, and much more. Eager to constantly learn new things, they have become an integral part of team education, providing assistance for smooth execution of educational events and webinars. This also opens avenues for LVPEI to expand the scope of this program in future and scale it up to make it bigger and better.
