What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The challenges of youth coming from economically weak community are innumerable. For learning this course minimum educational requirement is 12th standard pass. It is very expensive course in educational institutes. Not only their education level demands extra inputs to be at par with educated youth, economic disadvantage further pushes them to uncertainty in the job market is concerned. Lack of confidence and disempowerment is also hurdle for the youth from slum.

The project will allow the participants overcome the challenges of paying high fees for learning a useful course. Course will provide participants to get an entry level jobs. The beneficiaries will be fortified with entry level expertise in the industrial job market. This program will provide a certificate to ensure their validity and standing in industry.

These youth participants can become role models for others in their communities and families and become ambassadors of the training program. After doing these courses, the participants will get an entry in the formal job market. This will increase their self-respect, quality of life and improvement in their economic conditions.
