Facebook on Wednesday launched a digital skilling and mentorship initiative across five states in India that would encourage tribal girls to become village-level digital young leaders for their communities.

Named GOAL (Going Online As Leaders), the initiative will train young girls from West Bengal, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Odisha and Madhya Pradesh in digital literacy, life skills, leadership and entrepreneurship for a year. 

"The Internet, especially social media, over the past few years has emerged as one of the most powerful tools for empowering women from across India's diverse social economic backgrounds and varied cultural roots," Ankhi Das, Public Policy Director, Facebook -India, South and Central Asia, said in a statement. 

"With GOAL, we seek to make the digital medium more accessible and usable for young girls from our resource-rich but economically weak tribal communities in the country. 

"We are confident that this network of learners will employ these skills as a means of social and economic elevation for themselves and drive change making in their communities," Das said.
