About The Organization

 

Anudip Foundation is a non-profit social enterprise registered as a 501(c) 3 company in the US, and a Section 8 company in India which has generated sustainable knowledge-economy livelihoods for youth from marginalised communities through information and communication technologies. Since its inception in 2007, Anudip has trained more than 85,000 youth in high in demand and market aligned digital skills; and placed them in technology jobs that significantly boost their family income, thereby transforming lives and uplifting communities. Transformative initiatives such as blended learning, technology based student management system, use of LMS to track student progress, capacity building of marketing executives, and optimization of investment strategy across Anudip’s national network of training centres enabled the steep growth.

With the mission to generate sustainable knowledge-economy livelihoods for 100,000 youth through market aligned skills training, Anudip has spread its outreach through 97 training centres across 10 states and 2 countries (India and United States).

Anudip works exclusively with youth from marginalized communities such as minorities, tribals, migrants, political refugees, impoverished families (below poverty line), victims of trafficking and persons with disability. These youngsters are generally dropouts from schools/colleges between the age of 18-30 years and have no or limited skills to compete with the urban workforce for new economy jobs. Our programs have been designed to assist such youth step out of the generational poverty trap often riddled with financial debts, and shield them from social evils like trafficking, insurgency or early marriages. Besides developing employability skills for the marginalized youth through its digital livelihoods program, Anudip provides job placement services (minimum 70%) in IT-enabled jobs in e-Commerce, retail, project services, microfinance, entrepreneurships and other sectors. Such economic and social empowerment helps beneficiaries access needs like healthcare services, siblings’ education and create financial savings for themselves and their family.

Special Features Of The Organization

Strategic Employer Partnerships:

Anudip’s reputation as a niche quality training provider while being selective about the socio-economic background of its beneficiaries has enabled it to forge strategic partnerships with employers such as iMerit Technologies, Tata Consultancy Services and Tech Mahindra. These highly reputed employers have selected Anudip as one of their preferred hiring destinations. Such tie-ups enable better livelihoods for Anudip’s beneficiaries given better learning opportunities and growth paths that they offer.

Strategic Mobilisation partnerships: 

Anudip tends to scale up the beneficiaries without additional investment in infrastructure by fostering tie-ups with educational institutions such as under-graduate colleges, ITIs and engineering colleges. Apart from this, Anudip wishes to collaborate with other NGO partners to leverage their extensive presence in the geography to enable quicker tie-ups. These tie-ups will help reduce the cost of mobilisation and training of students.


Use of Technology in Training:

All of Anudip’s programs focus on creation of aspirational livelihoods. Hence apart from the hard technical skills, the courses include components of work readiness skills such as communication, team work, work ethics and grooming. Many of these pieces will be delivered virtually in a live online mode helping us retain a smaller pool of trainers for soft skills while impacting larger numbers and maintaining consistency. These skills also help in increasing retention in jobs and quicker career growth.

Alumni Network:

In a short period of time, Anudip has built up a strong brand amongst the under-served student communities. Anudip has already started leveraging this student alumni base. Going forward, the alumni will work as brand ambassadors in the community who influence other youngsters to join the programs and embark on a livelihood. Anudip will continue to enhance this alumni base who will not just serve as role models for others but also assist in placement and mobilisation referrals and work as mentors.

Quality and Monitoring:

Anudip will continue to strengthen its monitoring systems as we scale up by deploying technology to ensure that loopholes are plugged. Anudip uses cc tv cameras to monitor center operations and ensure authentic student assessments. Biometric devices capture student attendance and hence prevent incorrect attendance capture. Consistent and regular attendance leads to better learning outcomes and consequently better student placements. Anudip prides itself in having a drop out rate or less than 2%, which is extremely high in the sector.


Scaling Sustainably:

Anudip believes strongly in creating a strong ROI for its sponsors. All of the above initiatives help scalability of the impact and will bring down cost per student from $152 to $91, which is a 67% reduction in cost.

Professional Certification:

Anudip maintains its distinctive presence in this space by providing professional certifications in partnership with companies such as Cisco and Microsoft. These certifications are  universally recognized and provide a competitive edge to our beneficiaries.
