Summary

Education, Employability and Empowerment (E3 for Youth) is a 4 year programme to engage with 75 adolescents and youth from M East Ward (most underserved ward in Mumbai, India) to enable them to complete higher education, develop aspirations and gain employability skills with a focus on sustaining livelihoods. They will also become community leaders through Life Skills and Citizenship training.

Challenge

As per Apnalaya's recent survey report that studied 6627 households in the slums of M East Ward, 29% children in the Right to Education age group (6-14 years), are out of school. The issue of underage marriage is also at large with 38.3% girls and 48% boys getting married before the legal age. These issues lead to limited schooling, low aspirations and, consequently, low skill sets which hampers the access to sustainable livelihoods and upward mobility of the youth in the community.

Solution

At the end of two years, 75 adolescents and youth will be supported to continue higher education and get better social education; they will have an understanding of their aptitude and possible career opportunities and gain employability skills. Additionally, they will become community leaders.

Long-Term Impact

The 75 adolescents and youth will become role models in the community, especially those who have low aspirations. They will also become community leaders who will join Civic Action groups and mentor youth like them. The programme will enable youth to participate in their own development, become self-sustained individuals and work on the development of their communities through Civic Action Groups without the direct support of an NGO.
