Youth from slums, vulnerable families and lower socio-economic households rarely get jobs in the formal sector. Saath identifies these youth, train them and place them with entry level jobs in manufacturing and service sectors.
Youth as a group, face problems related to employment, health, sex, education, future prospects and all these along with the metamorphosis into an adult. Youth in slums face not only a lack of basic services, but additionally have to deal with the issue of creating their identity, shouldering responsibility and making it on their own. Armed with a sub-standard education, limited social skills, and restricted information these youth face the globalised world.
The project trains unemployed, school and college drop out youth from slums in different technical sectors such as Customer Relations and Servicing, Computer Hardware, Desktop Publishing, BPO, Bed Side Patient Skills and lifeskills and places them with entry level jobs in the formal sector.
