Like most girls in Metiabruz on the southern fringes of Kolkata, Noorjahan Yusuf’s dreams were of the ordinary kind. She wanted to become a teacher after completing her BSc from the neighbouring Hari Mohan Ghosh College. Then she learnt about a three-month course being offered by the Anudip Foundation through Swayam, an NGO working with her community on women’s rights issues. Two and a half years later, she’s worked her way up the ranks at iMerit, the IT services business incubated at Anudip, to become an administrative supervisor at its Metiabruz unit.
