In India, only 4.69 percent of the workforce has formal vocational skills compared to 60 to 90 percent of the workforce in developed countries. The youth of India is its untapped potential. 1 in every third person in the country is a youngster below the age of 24, yet most lack any formal exposure to skill development. Youth constitute a large chunk of the Indian workforce, yet 80% doesn’t possess any marketable skills. While the government has initiated several projects to address this gap through its Skill India Mission, there is an urgent need to empower more youngsters to create a robust workforce. This will not only help us meet the needs of the country’s industries but also enable more people to become financially independent.
Youngsters from disadvantaged communities are unable to avail any technical, vocational or professional skill training due to poverty, a lack of awareness and a lack of understanding of the job market. Youngsters living in underprivileged communities, lack employment opportunities and the chance to train themselves with the skills needed to pave the way for better employment. Today, Raise India Foundation have set up many skill training centres in rural India to deliver vocational training and help individuals get more employment opportunities.
