OUR MODEL

IndiVillage is a social enterprise focused on providing education and economic opportunity to women and youth in rural India. We reinvest 100% of our profits back into the community with a focus on education and clean water initiatives. Through partnerships with local NGOs we are able to fund scholarships, support teachers, and invest in technology for the classroom to ensure the next generation is prepared for the 21st century. Our clean water project supplies water to 1,200 school children and 1,000 families (4,500 people) providing access to undeserved communities.

By working at IndiVillage our employees earn steady wages, raise their household income, and improve the lives of their families. 70% of the employees we have trained over the years have been women.

EMPOWER.

IndiVillage seeks to empower rural communities by providing individuals the tools and opportunities needed to take control of their lives: education and employment.

 
I stopped my education due to financial reasons. Now that I have the money to support my education myself I am completing my Bachelor of Commerce in a nearby town. I never thought in my life I would work at an IT services company. When I started working at IndiVillage it was like a dream.
— Nalini, 26, Quality Analyst
I was a housewife. This is my first job. I didn’t know the outside world. My first time using a computer, I didn’t know if I could do it. Now I feel comfortable and capable of learning new things. I give my best to IndiVillage.
— Suneetha, 34, Team Leader
IndiVillage is really important - my life has completely turned. I started a career and learned new things. I am able to support my family and make decisions about what is right and wrong. I have respect at home and outside.
— Sindhu, 21, Team Leader
 

IMPACT METRICS

Our Impact to society goes beyond merely providing jobs in a rural landscape. The increase in income per capita is definitely helpful. However the larger effect is felt in the change in the belief systems locally - a positive change in gender perceptions, the confidence in financial literacy, ability to provide better healthcare and education and encouragement in entrepreneurial mindsets are our ultimate rewards.

Here's a snapshot of the impact provided by Indivillage over the last couple of years
