Connecting Underprivileged Communities to Income Generation
  • Crisis: Unemployment is currently at its peak in India, with ~2 crore youth unemployed primarily due to lack of employability skills. Consequently, industry suffers while young people, particularly from underprivileged communities, struggle to get employed. ETASHA works to bridge this mismatch.
  • Programs: They work with underprivileged youth to make them employment-ready and connect them with employment opportunities. 1) Vocational Training & Placement: Short-duration industry-relevant skills training and placement for Std XII passed underprivileged youth. 2) Employability Skill Development & Placement: Soft and core skills training and placement for youth enrolled in technical programs in ITIs. 3) Counseling and Guidance. 4) Capacity building of ITI instructors: Covers exposure to industry and skilling in appropriate methodologies for mentoring and training youth in employability skills. 5) Women Entrepreneurship: Training in Enterprise Management, trade-specific skills and life skills, followed by support in setting up and successfully running enterprises.
  • Outcome: 36,000+ beneficiaries reached, including 5,300 youth trained and over 70% employed in organised industry; 15,500 school-going adolescents provided life and employability skills training; 9,800 students provided career guidance; 30 women running 6 enterprises.
