NEF offers 5,500 high quality K-99 online courses and mentoring using state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS) and interactive video platform.

What We Do

NEF International training: provides academic, digital and workforce training to disadvantaged students and adults in many countries including India, Egypt, Jordan and Mauritius (training the entire population in digital literacy and IT). 

NEF believes that training and placing in jobs unemployed college graduates in terror-prone countries is the most cost-effective way to combat global terrorism. To this extent, NEF launched the Million Indians IT Education (MIITE) project in India in 2011 in partnership with IGNOU, the world’s largest Open University with 4 million students.
