Business details

Anudip aims at providing IT Training at a marginal cost to rural youth and women, and providing employment opportunities in areas where they previously do not exist. The most differentiating factor about Anudip's initiative is that IT enabled livelihood opportunities can be created from within the local, rural community. Three reasons make this a reality: 1. Market Aligned skills Training allows Anudip to train its students for jobs in their local areas 2. The entrepreneurship development program allows rural people to start IT enabled micro-enterprises in their communities, raising not only their own incomes, but increasing local economic activity. 3. The business process outsourcing centers provide local employment opportunities without forcing employees to migrate to an urban center. Some of the challenges in the mission include Poor English skills and Lack of motivation of rural youth.
