India has become the 5th largest economy in the world, but ~360 million are “poor” (using Government metrics), and 145 million live below the poverty line. This inequity is unacceptable. About 3.4% of our annual budget or 0.28% of the income of the top 1% of our population would lift and could bring everybody above the poverty line. However, this is complex and we need the best of human intellects to be focused on solving it.
The/Nudge Foundation exists to alleviate poverty, sustainably and scalably. We are a collective of some of India’s best leaders and entrepreneurs from across industry, academia, government and development sectors, and our work is organized across three impact streams:
Centre For Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (CSDE) : exists to enable underprivileged youth to lead flourishing lives
Center for Rural Development (CRD): exists to enable families to come out of extreme poverty
Center for Social Innovation (CSI): exists to nudge top talent to solve for India’s biggest challenges
About Future Perfect:
Future Perfect exists to enable upward socio-economic mobility for youth from low income families through development of employability skills and english proficiency. Our goal is to create a deeply impactful and highly scalable model for online learning that enables underprivileged youth across the country to lead flourishing lives.
The Sprit of The/Nudge:
Honesty towards our purpose | Empathy towards others | Continuous innovation | Focused on scale | Impatience towards our goals
