The MA Math offers free computerized Vocational Education Training (cVET) to teach skills to women in rural villages across India. They advance economically and socially with an ability to earn an income. With only a small team, limited resources and within just one year, over 160 women have been trained in basic masonry, plumbing, and sanitation awareness as well as toilet building. They have built 100 toilets to address open defecation through skill development. I also volunteer with Amrita University and Ammachi Labs in an effort to create research collaborations around the world.
