Established in 2001, NASSCOM Foundation has been a witness to the transformative power of technology for the last 20 years. A part of the NASSCOM ecosystem, we are the only neutral, not for profit organization, representing the Indian Tech Industry.
Picture this. A perfect India free from the grips of poverty, gender inequality, overpopulation, corruption, malnutrition and many other socio-economic challenges that she faces today. Idealistic isn’t it? In a country like ours where non for profits operate along with other stakeholders to paint just this picture of the country, despite the existing challenges, there remains a lot to be done to empower and enable these bodies to realize their potential. We see it as ‘demand’.
Technology and the IT- BPM industry has played a fundamental role in development contributing to the nation’s GDP. However, it has not impacted the bottom of the pyramid and still remains exclusive. There is untapped potential of this huge industry to make sustainable development a reality. We see it as ‘opportunity’.
NASSCOM Foundation, leveraging its unique position as the social arm of the industry body NASSCOM, aims to meet this ‘demand’ tapping the ‘opportunity’. Our work is just as expansive and evolutionary as the potential that technology and corporate India entail. Drawing strength from its strong association with its four major stakeholders – NASSCOM, NGOs, emerging social enterprises and Government, the Foundation is changing India bit by bit.
NASSCOM Foundation is a non-profit with a vision to empower lives through technology and work towards creating a truly inclusive India.
The Foundation is leveraging the capabilities of IT-BPM member companies of NASSCOM along with emerging social enterprises to meet the technology needs of non-profits and underserved communities across India with continuous support from the Government.
Leveraging technology to create an inclusive and progressive India
