Thank you for your confidence in Anudip Foundation to carry through with its mission to provide jobs or incubate business startups for marginalized Indian youth. Some of the evils of letting bright and educated minds stagnate are drugs, crime and insurgency as well as loss of voice and self-identity in their families and communities.

Since the GlobalGiving campaign began, Anudip has launched several new training centers as the new financial year got underway. We have laid plans for expanding operations from West Bengal to Jamshedpur and Ranchi regions of Jharkhand in the 2nd quarter, and to Orissa toward the end of the year.

In this period Anudip was showcased in the country's largest-circulation newspaper, Times of India, to coincide with unveiling of the national budget as an example of rural progress. The clip from TOI is attached.

Our training target for 2012-13 is 5000 young men and women, 1500 of whom we expect to fund through the GlobalGiving channel. Our other sources of income are grants from American India Foundation and Omidyar Network, a soft loan from the National Skills Development Corp, and our own earned income.

Anudip's faculty is growing and looks forward to scaling the company to become a leader in rural skills development in a country where villages continue  to languish as backwaters.

You can track our progress on our website,

With good wishes

Dipak Basu.
