We focus on bridging learning gaps in young adults, related to technology and life skills. Targeted initiatives train and upskill women and young adults on essentials like computer literacy and other life skills like financial and digital literacy.
Experienced professionals conduct 12 programmes in a month, impacting close to 280 young adults who are upskilled and certified to build sustainable livelihoods for themselves. We run two training centres for women imparting livelihood skills to enable them to create alternative livelihoods and financially contribute to the family.
We plan to particularly engage with our contractual support staff families and empower them through upskilling initiatives.
