Project #13669

Job skills for poor and unemployed in India

by Anudip Foundation for Social Welfare


This project will bring a highly skilled English faculty member to coach our English and job skills trainers at Anudip's rural skill building centers. The faculty member will also provide personal coaching to staff of our IT project centers, all of whom come from below poverty line families, to enhance their ability to interact with US and European clients.

One large barrier that now exists between rural youth and women and a professional career is a lack of ability to speak English and poor employability. Anudip is addressing this issue with locally recruited trainers, but their training methods need development by a faculty member specializing in English as a Second Language.


We have identified a faculty member with excellent qualifications to work with Anudip faculty and project staff to improve their language, employability and communcation skills. This project funding will help us bring her into our training program.

Long-Term Impact

By the end of 2013, Anudip will have trained 22,000 students and employed 750 project staff. Given that the average family size in India is 5 people, through our program we will have impacted 110,000 people. The English trainer will leave behind resources that will allow for future Anudip employees to be trained in English language creating a lasting legacy.
