The mobile van is a unique concept of reaching out to the remotest area and the poorest of people like those in the remote salt pans.

   
  Technology
Hardware
  Each SSK began by housing 3-5 computers. In addition to the desktops, SSKs were equipped with the necessary peripheral hardware - printers, fax machines, scanners (where needed), digital cameras (in a few SSKs), and local area network (LAN) to connect these pieces of equipment. LAN networking at the SSK had been made a part of the basic set up, allowing for sharing of course-content and practice sheets amongst the training participants, resulting in inspired group work.
Software
  The front-end user interface at SSKs started with software applications for microfinance and artisan-producer groups. It included small desktop applications for collecting, storing and transmitting data in pre-determined formats which had been implemented at the district association offices of SEWA and at some SSKs.
Content
  Suitable and appropriate content (on CDROMs and other forms of electronic media) were provided at the SSK on desktop computers. Over the years, SEWA had used the medium of video to depict best practices in hygiene, healthcare, and childcare.
Connectivity
  Connectivity, especially in Indian rural setting, had always been a challenge. However, penetration of basic telephony system in the state of Gujarat had been fairly adequate; hence dial-up connectivity with a modem connecting to the closest Internet Service Provider (ISP) was possible in most of the districts where SEWA had operations.
