Every human being born is not necessarily guilty but certain unfortunate circumstances make him a culprit. This program aimed at bringing such worthy, back to mainstreams by providing them computer training. Thus, this computer education program is also extended to jails across India. The project that is operated under this program is called ‘Umeed’. This project specifically aims at educating the jail inmates with basic computer training which they can utilize later upon their release. We also try and assist them in placement. This program started with one computer center at Tihar and now spreads across 42 jails in India. It has helped to position the foundation as one of the pioneers in human development as well as got recognized by the government for its efforts. Some of the industry majors also helped us in absorbing the skilled inmates through our placement program that is a unique example of sustainability and support to the underprivileged.

This Foundation maintains a low profile where branding is not a direct plan of action. Hence our motto is to reach out to the underprivileged and BPL as much as possible.
