DIGITALLY EMPOWER THE POOR & MUSICAL JOURNEY OF GOLDEN MEMORIES | Maharajah Kebab And Grill Restaurant | Friday, 13. December 2019

Since July 2019, US India Policy Institute (USIPI) and Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF) have started scouting locations to acquire space and assess infrastructure needs to establish 11 digital centers spread over 8 states. Each Digital Center provides connectivity, affordable digital services and impart skills training for young as well as ***** populations of the local families. The centers will also facilitate application to the government's expansive social protection programs designed for the poorest of poor. These services are out of the reach for many families due to lack of awareness and access.
USIPI also hopes to use data on economic measures from the grassroots through these centers to aid in its human development research. USIPI is the only community supported 501c3 non-profit policy think tank that focuses on empowering the poor and vulnerable communities in India.

Affordable Citizenship Services
The Digital Centers will facilitate applying for citizenship documents (NRC) and to several benefit programs such as

Aadhar Card
Voter Registration
Scholarship programs
Widow Pensions
Old Age Pensions
Loans, Subsidies and Self-Help Groups

USIPI's research based on household survey across five Indian states in 2015 has shown that thousands of deserving families are unable to access such benefits due to lack of awareness or access to affordable internet. The Digital Centers will help fill this void for the families that fall through the cracks of Indian government's poverty alleviation programs.
