Project Description

I Got Garbage (IGG): It continues to take waste-pickers away from the hazards of landfills and provide them a dignified livelihood. Today, IGG is growing strong – with a presence across five Indian cities and successful recycling of over 10 million kilograms of waste. Waste management involves a lot more than transporting garbage from homes to landfills. It involves managing multiple stakeholders and complex processes. I Got Garbage navigates these challenges through technology and a smart approach. By connecting the following four stakeholders, IGG offers the entire gamut of waste management solutions by making the waste-picker the primary driving force.

I Got Skills (IGS) is their flagship program in partnership with the Government of Karnataka to up skill the state’s workforce. Their objective is to career counsel unemployed youth in the state, which will not only provide them with a livelihood but also enhance confidence and self esteem. Through this program, they aim to skill the unemployed youth such that their capabilities match the new requirements of today’s business establishments. To begin with, they have created an application and on boarded unemployed youth and potential employers of the informal sector. The primary objective of the app is to function as a matchmaker and connect the most suitable employer and employee. At the same time, they have encouraged employers to start apprenticeship programs that could enhance skills of the unemployed. They are happy to note that 10,000 employers are now offering apprenticeships.

I Got Crops (IGC): They have developed a digital platform that enhances the entire agriculture value chain for a farmer — from crop selection to distribution and sales. To drive tangible impact, they have partnered with Vrutti: a non-profit organization that works to create sustainable livelihoods — to enhance efficiencies of the farming community via farmer producer organizations.
