Sizer Infotech Charitable Society
With a common objective to work for the betterment of the underprivileged population in the society, two likeminded professionals with expertise in different domains, Sharad Kumar Tripathi and Anshuman Shukla joined hands to establish Sizer Infotech Charitable Society at Kanpur (UP) in the year 2001. While Sharad Kumar Tripathi had relevant working experience of community mobilisation and counselling, Anshuman Shukla came from the field of technical education and knowledge of running a computer training institute for youth. In the course of conducting training sessions, he explored the potential of information technology in providing better employment opportunities to the underprivileged youth and this led to the establishment of Sizer Infotech Charitable Society.
