NEW DELHI, June 26 - Ten women would be chosen from three north-eastern states of Nagaland, Meghalaya and Manipur to pilot a project with online accommodation platform Airbnb for generating technology-enabled livelihood opportunities in tourism and hospitality, according to the NCW chairperson.

The National Commission for Women and Airbnb will work towards expansion of homestay tourism facility in rural homes in the north-eastern states through women commissions.

The 10 women would be chosen by the state commissions and be trained by Airbnb in the tourism and hospitality services.

�The aim of the partnership is to create women micro-entrepreneurs and help families supplement their income through home-sharing on a global platform,� NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma said.

There was a meeting last week with the representatives from the three states and Airbnb for taking the project forward and within a week the state commissions would be sending names of the 10 women from Nagaland, Meghalaya and Manipur who would be piloting the project, Sharma said.

�We will gradually cover other states under the programme too,� she said. The objective of the project is to enable financial empowerment of women who could contribute to the overall development of local communities in the region, the NCW chairperson added.

Earlier, Airbnb Global Head of Policy Chris Lehane had said in a statement that India�s northeast, with its immense tourism potential, is a priority market for Airbnb and �we are very excited about the partnership with the National Commission for Women�. � PTI
