AMBA is an Ashoka Fellow driven Social Enterprise, a registered Trust since 2004 with 12A and 80G Tax exemptions. We are also Registered under Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, 2010 (FCRA – 094421635). AMBA is empanelled under the NITI AAYOG's NGO Darpan Portal (Darpan Unique ID - KA/2016/0099312).


AMBA over the years has within collaborations with Special Institutions, has set up 475 hubs for Alternate Learning leading to Employment for adults with moderate to severe intellectual disability across 25 states in India. 80% are from Rural India. 37% of our work force are now women. 

AMBA curriculum with Copyright© status Pan India, is adaptive, visual and functional using the computer as a tool to enable back end services, meeting Service Level Agreement ((SLA) of the Client. 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. In the Financial Year 2019-20, 105 ACPCs (AMBA Certified Partner Centres) are scheduled to start Live work. 83 ACPC’s from Rural India where bringing employment in general is challenging.

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.

Since the outbreak of COVID19 Pandemic we have overcome concerns which was our youngsters digressing back with the long period of inactivity.  Since most of them don't have computers at home we have arranged for laptops and for our peers to work from home and have evolved once again a non-computer process of visual matching and non-computer data entry using the newspaper as the keyboard so once this lock down is over we can immediately continue with training and take them into work. This process done five days a week will keep their minds stimulated, improve their cognitive challenges and accuracy. Data entry using the computer is looking at the reference, finding the reference on the computer and ensuring the same is accurately there on the Monitor. We have replaced the keyboard with the newspaper and the monitor is the finished product of the word pasted in the book. Our Team at AMBA is working in continuity to take this to all our partners across India.

Where there has been no setback at all, is our association with Bombay Stock Exchange. We are working with an AI company to automate the data processing to the maximum possible to reduce the load of work on our youngsters.  At BSE we are working directly with  the Head of the concerned department and his team with the Company Secretary personally overseeing this project. The volume of work is huge.

A residential solution in the parents’ lifetime. We really need support to enable scale in continuity, to enable a movement to ensure scale even beyond us:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=4&v=gnh_ukv_SSg gives you a visual of how we use Peers at the AMBA HQ, Bangalore and the Team viewer to access the peers in the AMBA Certified Partnerships across India, to start work training for them.

The Social impact in giving them the dignity of becoming  contributors to their home and Society is amazing to witness. 

Now more than ever, we need you to put your faith in AMBA.

AMBA is an Ashoka Fellow driven, not for profit, social enterprise. AMBA addresses Alternate Education and Employment for adults with moderate to severe intellectual disability, who have no capacity to cope with the Open System of Learning or Employment. 

To resolve this challenge, AMBA has collaborated with Special Institutions that address and understand this community and have helped them become hubs for Alternate Learning and Employment. We call them ACPCs (AMBA Certified Partner Centers). 

We have in the last three years accelerated scale and shared the AMBA Concept with 475 ACPCs in 25 states in India. 80% in Rural India where bringing employment in general is challenging. 37% of our work force are women. 

AMBA curriculum has received copyright/IPR status pan India.  The peer driven, functional training process enables visual matching skills to perform high quality and accurate back office data entry roles for various clients.

Today these skills are being used for doing the back end annotations for a camera based Artificial Intelligence solution. There is a possibility of AMBA getting AI backend work from Israel.

Post Global Automation  and the massive changes in processes, we have accrued huge possibilities of Business to match the training that we do. 

600 youngsters from 33 ACPCs are in Live work training;  1500 youngsters from 72 ACPCs are ready to go into Live work in 2019-20; over 4000 youngsters from 199 ACPCs into Live work from 2019-2022.  171 ACPCs will be work ready by 2021 going into Live work by 2023.

We have the Business to enable economic empowerment  and employment to  20 beneficiaries in each ACPC, while helping the ACPC become a hub for Learning, Employment and Scale within the ACPC.  We need Annual Funding in continuity to enable training and employment using ICT, the computer and Peer driven processes.

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.

We are also looking for a partner to enable the AMBA Township in Bangalore, to include: a residential Centre of Excellence to impart and share the AMBA Training in scale; a residential BPO to cover the residential and employment requirements of 2000 adults in the first phase; a research and documentation centre; Nursing and First Aid and a retirement Home for the Parents and Care Givers of the community we serve. A residential solution in the parents’ lifetime. We really need support to enable scale in continuity, to enable a movement to ensure scale even beyond us:
