Mathukathe is an adapter kit for smartphones/PC that allows illiterate villagers with no schooling to find jobs, learn of development opportunities and provide feedback on welfare. It can be thought of as a hybrid ATM, coin phone device. One device can serve an entire village.

How does your innovation work?
This is a social venture for profit. Our services are completely free for labourers and our charges for employers will be structured to accomodate small shops, roadside vendors who may need support. Currently the sysem runs free for employers too. A villager with no schoolisng can operate it to find jobs, learn of development schemes and provide feedback on her welfare. It works like a combo of an ATM and phone. A user gets afree pre-registered card that she inserts into the machine. A voice menu in her native language describes jobs suitable for her. Pressing the green button connects her to the potential employer. pressing the red button skips to next job.
