Text: This is a story of the inspiring ways that women can support and are supporting each other through collaboration. And how efforts, great and small, can make a difference when put together. Dr. Sarbani said it best: “I don’t see connectivity as an interlinkage between different devices. I see it as a network of human relationships, understanding each other, caring for each other, trying to build up trust in each other. I see the women in the community network as those who take the responsibility of building connectivity between human beings within the community. That is something very essential.”
