Phoolwati belongs to a relatively small village. When she started as a Saathi, her family didn't believe that women had any need for the Internet. Today she is admired in several villages for transforming the lives of women and their families.

Among many others, Phoolwati trains girls in a school to use the Internet. She helps them use it to get information about their exam centers, dates, and results, which saves them going into the city to find these details.
