Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF), a Delhi-based not-for-profit organisation, was registered on December 2002, to find solutions to bridge the digital divide. With no political affiliations, it was founded to uplift the downtrodden and to create economic and commercial viability using information and communications technologies (ICTs) as means to these ends.

DEF’s vision is to make digital inclusion reach the masses, to create even opportunities and linkages between haves and have-nots so that the grassroots knowledge reaches the economic prosperity and vice versa through ICT and digital media. The objectives of the work of DEF are to offer and facilitate seamless ICT and digital solutions linkages to the needs and demands from the diverse groups of rural areas; to sensitise and provide knowledge inroads to the government and corporate sectors to offer inclusive ICT solutions for the masses; and to create digital media platforms for the masses.
