"Enabling 10,000 under-represented Graduates from Tamil Nadu."

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority,
it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).

Mark Twain

Why is this reforming necessary?

Education is the only solution to elevate the social and economic inequalities prevailing in the marginalised sections of our society. When we invest in economically challenged and under-privileged meritorious youth, we not only help that particular individual, but their whole family. Thus, eventually uplifting our entire nation!

And in the current era, Coding has emerged as the number-one in-demand in demand skill, and it is arguably one of the most important skills for current as well as future generations to learn. And that’s what neoCoder’s TN Mission 10k is all about!

The WHOs, WHATs, WHYs & HOWs

WHO ARE UNDER-REPRESENTED?​

1. Government School Student
2. 1st Generation Graduates
3. Person with Disabilities
4. Candidates from Rural/ Tribal Background
5. Women Graduates
6. Graduates without any Family Support

WHAT'S THE URGE?

1. One of the goals of “Tamil Nadu’s Industrial Policy 2021” is to create 20 Lakh employment opportunity by 2025

2. Tamil Nadu is about to set up “Mini Tidel/ IT Parks” in Tier 2 & 3 Towns, to spread out the IT Sector which is dependent on Chennai & Coimbatore

3. "TCS, Cognizant, Infosys, Wipro, HCL plan to hire 1.1k freshers in FY22.  This is considering only the top five companies."

WHY FOCUS ON THE​ UNDER-REPRESENTED?​​

Tamil Nadu has the highest number of technical universities in the country, with more than 3 million students pursuing any particular degree.​

But, only 25% under-represented women and socially backward students, graduate every year
25%

How enabling under-represented​ graduates helps?​

Developing under-represented graduate increases the job-ready population in Tier 2 & 3 towns, since majority are from those regions. Thus, taking a lead from IT firm ZOHO's experience, many other firms will also seek the creation of IT parks in hinterland.​

How Tamil Nadu can regain​ its status as the IT Capital of India?​

Approach to Regain​
