    This fundraiser will benefit

    organisation operations

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

As of 2019, it was found that 30% of India’s youth (people aged between15-29 years) are not in education, employment, or training (NEET). In fact, the number of females who are NEET has been increasing since 2004. (full report available here)

Although India has one of the largest education systems in the world, the employability of educated graduates is one of the biggest challenges the country continues to face today. With the number of unemployed graduate job-seekers from general education streams increasing every year, this has rapidly become a matter of highly increasing concern. It is with the intention of solving this problem that Amplifying Voices was founded in September 2020.

To provide access and opportunities for learning and skill development to the youth of India's Economically Weaker Sections, we are currently run two initiatives:

  1.  Gadget Sponsorship and Donation Drive:
 Taking into context the challenges that the pandemic has brought to providing basic access to education and learning, the need to bridge the technology gap has become all the more urgent.  You can learn more about our process and impact on www.amplifyingvoices.in

  1. Research Project on Understanding Unemployment Among India’s Youth:
Due to the uniqueness of India’s socio-economic context, we wish to establish a thorough understanding of the problem. The project commenced on January 11, 2021 with our 8 enthusiastic student interns being the key drivers.



As we navigate through this crucial phase of our journey, we once again look to you for support.

The funds raised will be used towards the following:
i) Stipends and other compensation for student interns: Rs. 40,000/-
ii) Purchase of online tools to facilitate workshops and sessions: Rs. 20,000/-
iii) Promotional and logistical expenses: Rs. 20,000/-
iv) Purchase of tools and subscriptions to reading resources for the research project: Rs. 20,000/-
v) Repair and courier expenses for second-hand gadgets being donated: Rs. 50,000/-

You can also extend non-monetary support by:
i) Spreading the word in your social circles and sharing on social media
ii) Donating a spare laptop by contacting us on +91 9740764401
iii) Staying updated on our activities by connecting with us on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, and Twitter
