Unemployed youth: Youth are disproportionately affected by the economic forces that drive unemployment and vulnerable employment. 54% of our total population is below 25 years of age and most of them find themselves working in the unorganized sector or living in poverty.
Involvement of women: Women make up 48% of India’s population. Only 65% are literate and less than a third of the women – 15 years or older – are working or actively looking for a job. – World Bank 2019
Marginalized population: Marginalized groups such as scheduled castes and tribes, persons with disabilities, migrants, prisoners, substance-users etc, face structural discrimination in Indian society, thus reducing access to livelihood and employment opportunities.
Reducing inequality: We focus on unemployed youth, women, marginalized groups and underserved geographies.
Providing value: Being 100% subsidized, our programmes incentivize unemployed and low-income individuals.
Providing credibility: Government and relevant certification adds credibility, boosts employment prospects and eases access to bank loans for setting up entrepreneurial ventures.
Tools of the trade: In many cases, we distribute free tool kits to our skilled graduates at the end of the training.
Access to employment opportunities: We help students gain access to job and business opportunities through job fairs, campus placement, mentoring support, micro-finance facilitation and linkages to markets.
Holistic framework: Our programs include behavioural training and attitudinal change through self-development programs, combining yoga and meditation with practical tools and tips for stress-free living.
