Subject: E-waste mining is a process where valuable materials such as gold, copper, iron and
plastic are extracted from the circuitry of computers and cell phones, by using the same
techniques that miners use to process metal ores.
One tone of scraps from discarded computers contains more gold than can be produced
from 17 tons of gold ore. Mumbai, alone throws away 19,000 tons of electronic waste a
year, excluding the large e-waste imports from developed nations through its port.
E-waste is often richer in rare metals than their ores, containing 10-50 times higher copper
content than copper ore. A cell phone contains five to 10 times’ higher gold content than
gold ore. Sunder Thadani. 20170605.

In recent years, the Indian government has focused on making schools more accessible so that more Indian children can participate in India’s extraordinary economic growth. Enrollment in India’s public and private schools has increased, yet the country still struggles with improving the low quality of education. It’s estimated that 53 percent of fifth graders can’t read at a second-grade level. Meanwhile, 46 percent can’t solve a two-digit subtraction problem.
Unfortunately, the quality education challenge in India extends beyond primary and secondary schooling. Those that do get through school struggle with highly competitive college entrance examinations to top tier colleges and others fail to complete college, even at less reputable institutions, creating an imminent shortage of skilled employees. In a workforce of more than 495 million, less than 10 percent possess employable skills despite informal and formal vocational training programs. Over the next ten years, 500 million youth will need to be skilled to support market demands.
Further to the education challenge is the lack of access to financial products and services for an estimated 280 million people. Far too many of India’s low-income families are still unbanked which limits the necessary incentives for entrepreneurship and engagement in the economy.
We are encouraged by the new and unprecedented focus placed by the Indian government on improving education quality, job-oriented skill development and catalyzing an environment for entrepreneurial growth. We know that giving people living in urban poverty a quality education, the right financial tools, skills development and employment opportunities can lead to better outcomes. We have learned that urban youth from low-income families are ambitious, and they seek a path to the middle class and not just a minimum wage job. We know that all parents, no matter what their economic status, want the best education for their children.
We opened our India office in 2006 so we could foster high-quality education and improve family economic stability among India’s urban poor. We want to have an immediate, measurable and positive impact on the lives of individual children, while at the same time catalyzing systemic change. We employ a range of financial tools, from traditional philanthropic grants to mission-driven impact investments – using whichever strategy that we can measurably prove will help transform the most lives.
To those ends, we partner with a range of stakeholders, including governments, social entrepreneurs, NGOs, implementation experts, community organizations and other philanthropies. We play an active role in supporting key initiatives including Startup India, Skill India and Digital India to bring about sustainable and large scale change to benefit the underserved.

The story of India’s internet is yet in its first chapter. Nonetheless, it has been played out in the press like a reality show with drastic changes in fortunes chronicled, breathless speculation on winners and losers, investors alternately cast as matures or morons. In our opinion, the chapter to begin ahead will witness real companies that build sustainable business models and merit making us proud as has been the case with Amazon in the US and Ali in China. The opportunity has attracted the imagination of entrepreneurs and investors both domestically and globally. The market is so important that global internet players are entering with the motto of winning it any cost. Indian players will continue to face fierce competition from global counterparts with advantage of global learnings and access to large pools of capital. To fight out the battle, Indian entrepreneurs will require access to large sources of growth capital and management talent pool capable of steering the companies to their zeniths. We at Kalaari are big believers that India shall witness the success stories of internet companies solving large problems for Indians by Indian entrepreneurs in a uniquely Indian way. Whether for entrepreneurs or investors, the opportunity will be fiercely competitive – the throne is constantly evolving!
