Bring livelihoods to 150,000 rural youth in India



Anudip Foundation has to date provided livelihood skills development to 20,000+ marginalized youth and women in India in spoken English, IT and job-skills at rural centers in India. Over 80% of our graduates have been placed in jobs through agreements with local employers, or by our financing and mentoring entrepreneur groups in their start-up businesses.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

India's impressive GDP growth has not reached 650 million people who continue to live in poverty. Over 100 million educated but unemployed rural youth and women in India are unable to secure jobs for economical or traditional reasons and the absence of employable skills.This has led to widespread social evils such as crime, drugs and insurgency as the hunger for opportunity is vast while needs and dreams are unmet.

How will this project solve this problem?

(1) Skills Training, emphasizing rapid immersion in computer skills, job readiness and spoken English for rural youth, women and minorities (2) Job placement services for this large pool of skilled and low-cost workers (3) Financing and mentoring for graduates to set up IT-enabled businesses in their villages

Potential Long Term Impact

Anudip's programs have reversed urban migration, brought modern services to rural communities and provided minorities, especially women, with a voice in their lives
