Started by Abhishek, an IIT Delhi alumnus and Rishabh, NavGurukul brings fresh energy and unique approach to solving problems in the non-profit sector.

Shivam was working as a helper at a local bakery earning ₹5000 before joining NavGurukul. Shivam completed his class 12th till then. He grew up in a shelter home due to a broken relationship between his parents. Even though he was earning less, he aspired to do better and settle with his mother after getting a respectable job. However, his options were limited to becoming a data entry operator or if luck could help him - an accountant. Shivam’s story is just one of many.

"The potential is equally distributed, but the opportunity is not" That is one of the core beliefs with which NavGurukul is started and they are trying to bridge this gap by doing the following:

1. A one-year intensive in-resident program at par with B-tech (CS or IT) degree and better placements.

2. The curriculum is tailor-made to impart skills which are being used in the software technology and service industry today, making the students job-ready from day one and removing the need of an on the job training.

3. Other than learning coding skills students learn very important life skills: Like teamwork, organisational skills, written, and spoken English communication skills (NavGurukul centers are 'speak in English only' zones)

They currently run two centers for 50 amazing girls in Bangalore and for 50 boys in Dharamsala, with both campuses being located in a semi-urban area. The students come from 12 different states from Assam to Rajasthan, from Himachal Pradesh to Karnataka. Students learn the React.js or Node.js programming frameworks and Python and Javascript programming languages to build their algorithmic understanding. Campuses are English only zones for the students and hence they work extensively on their communication skills.

The first batch had 80% placements in IT jobs in startups earning 20,000 INR to 70,000 INR, and remaining students who couldn't learn well are working as data entry operators.

Students besides learning Software Engineering learn a lot of important life skills and develop themselves into empowered and confident individuals.

Why should the aspiration of the underprivileged be limited to being a data entry executive or a security guard in your building? You could now help the underprivileged youth build their future with access to skill training through Navgurukul.
