Anudip provides technical training, life skills coaching, and IT-based employment opportunities to low-income women and youth in India. These individuals face significant challenges:

  • 75% of people earn less than US$78 per month
  • 32% of youth age 15 to 24 are unemployed
  • 100 million youth age 18 to 25 are educated but unemployed or underemployed

Employment opportunities change lives

India’s technology sector is booming. Despite that, under- and unemployment among youth and women is high. Anudip addresses this gap by preparing low-income women and youth to work in the digital economy. Anudip’s programs help people move out of poverty, become financially independent, and contribute to local economic growth.

Increasing efficiency through technology

We have worked with Anudip to digitize its processes and optimize business operations.

Improvements in collecting, analyzing, validating, and evaluating data support Anudip’s decision-making, guide business strategy, and measure the impact on its beneficiaries over time.

We have also helped research, design, and implement new client service offerings to support progressively higher-level skills training.

  • An online technology platform has supported onboarding and training of beneficiaries, as well as helped them secure higher paying jobs
  • An increase in clients with higher revenue and margin potential is supporting long-term financial sustainability
  • Cisco Networking Academy curriculum prepares Anudip participants for entry-level computer networking jobs and industry certifications

Digitizing makes a difference

  • 70,000+ people trained at 150 training centers across India

  • 75% of Anudip participants secure jobs

  • US$1140 average annual family income, compared to US$360 before training

Technology not only increases our capacity through robust systems, it also allows us to control our costs through blended learning, larger centers, and improved trainer productivity.
