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.
India will continue to add 1 million to its workforce every month for the next 15 years, most of whom come from impoverished backgrounds. Our growing economy with a massive skill deficit provides a real opportunity for them to escape the cycle of poverty, through gainful employment but imparting livelihood training is proving to be insufficient.
The/Nudge Foundation focuses on sustainable poverty alleviation. The/Nudge Foundation is a collective initiative of some of India's best leaders and entrepreneurs, with a dream to see a poverty-free India within our generation.
Our goal is to pull 1 million people sustainably out of poverty.
