The process of fine tuning the curriculum, has evolved so many one of its kind processes, that have added huge value, to indirectly mainstreaming this community.

Challenges with work post Global Automation is still a struggle and we invite Individuals and Private Sector Organisations from India and Overseas to come forward to help us generate more opportunities of work to match the scale of Training.

AMBA has leveraged Technology to enable Alternate Learning and Employment to adults with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities pan India. It took us 12 years to develop and fine tune the AMBA ‘Copyrighted’ Curriculum within 31 pilots, using Peer Driven Processes. This resulted in  functional usage of the computer to outflow accurate data processing, meeting service level agreements of the client.

The cost per beneficiary is just Rs. 27,000/- all the way into work to include the laptop, training and monitoring using ICT and physically visiting and abetting progress.

Better internet connectivity to 80% of the AMBA partnerships in small towns and villages to abet productivity. Dongles are core productive than wired connectivity in most places Back end jobs from the Telecommunications, Banking, Passport, Insurance sectors to the AMBA Core Center in Bangalore to route work to the AMBA Certified Partnerships across India.

AMBA also invites similar partnerships for Funding to AMBA Core Center for the next three financial Years 2020-2023. Approximately summing up to INR 10 crores…to abet our ACPCs in scale.
