Save the Children is implementing Smartpur Project with the support from Nokia at 60 locations of Dungarpur District in Rajasthan. The project’s objective is to provide all critical services related to livelihood, education, governance, financial inclusion and health to the community under one roof through digital connectivity. The project is based on these five pillars and helping the marginalized community through digital inclusion in the tribal area. These different services like “linking with various social protection schemes, conducting digital classes to youth and children, banking service, money transfer, withdrawal and deposit, COVID vaccination registration, health awareness and connecting youth and adult to vocational training” are being offered by the centres at village and panchayat level.
In order to support this, Save the Children conducted a one-day capacity building training of the 55 Hub (Panchayat Level Centres) and Spoke (Village Level Centres) facilitators on the banking services and Micro-ATM use. This will help deliver the banking services at the doorstep to the community. During the training, Micro-ATM and thumb scanner machines were distributed to the facilitators to provide the banking services in their area. Along with this, Micro-ATM were also distributed to 47 Centre facilitators.
