Challenge: India has the largest concentration of youth population in the world with 369 million youth in the country. Each month, 1 million Indians will turn 18 for the coming several years. Almost 200 million youth are unemployed or underemployed working in harsh conditions and vulnerable to exploitation.
Current Limitations: Despite several efforts being made by the government, the capacity for vocational training is estimated to be only 25%.
Our Solution: Self-paced online learning is one way to enhance capacity quickly and skill youth for a sustainable livelihood. We have been successful in providing employable and life skills among underprivileged youth in partnership with grass root NGOs.
Thousands of learners have acquired a range of transferable skills that enable them access frontline employment opportunities.
