As of June 30, 2015, Anudip Foundation has provided livelihood skills development to more than 45,000 marginalized youth and women in India. Training is provided to our students in spoken English, IT and job-skills at 175+ rural and semi-urban 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 IT-enabled business start-ups.


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.


(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

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
