Story



Freedom For You Foundation (Freedom4U) aims to bring >300 marginalized girls/women from a slum pocket in Navi Mumbai, into the mainstream by teaching them basic & advanced computer operation skills including use of email, tablet, laptop & other digital equipment; This will improve their computer literacy,  appreciate and understand the govt subsidies coming into their bank account thru online digital payment system, besides making them digital savvy for trying utility payments thru online.


Freedom4U  has been empowering marginalized girls/women & has trained over 2100 poor girls/women in Beautician, Mehendi Art Design, Tailoring, Artificial Jewelry making, basic computer education, Rangoli, English speaking etc; Last 2 years Freedom4U has  set-up several Skill Development Centres  in a few slum/semi-urban & rural pockets in Digha/Airoli nodes of Navi Mumbai, Taloja (Panvel Taluka), Awashigaon/Pir Lote (Khed taluka) etc 


Now exclusive centres for imparting Computer Literacy has been planned at a cost of Rs 225,000/- per center per year where atleast 300-350 marginalized girls/women would be imparted free training in basic/advanced computer operations, in a period of max 9 months. This is a one time investment in equipment/infrastructureThe same equipment can be relocated to other new areas for similar training and only the operating/administrative costs shall be incurred in the new location.


Efforts of Freedom4U  imparting computer literacy to the marginalized, economically poor girls/women would not only strengthen the digital penetration into the bottom of the pyramid, where 65% of India's population resides, but also help in stabilizing lop-sided growth between the computer savvy (i.e, middle class population mostly) and the computer non-savvy (unaffordable to lower class,APL & BPL) population. 


Freedom4U is a CHAMPION Level PLATINUM rated NGO, since last 3 years from the time rating of NGOs was started by the pioneer GUIDESTAR India. Only 14 NGOs have been awarded such prestigious Platinum rating till date for transparency, public accountability and compliance of statutory laws. In addition, Freedom4U is a TOP rated "SUPERSTAR" awardee from GlobalGiving USA/UK, qualified under CAFA (Charities Aid Foundation of Americas), received "BEST Social Organization in Navi Mumbai -201"' Award in May 2017.
