Challenge

70% of India's current population is below 35. Sadly 80% of these youngsters who are from tribes and lower castes don't even finish elementary school. Many are unemployed and struggle to attain a prosporous lifestyle. CYDA puts them on the right track by offering a 1 year internship that focusses on skill building. Their self esteem is strenghtened, they've gained work experience therefore better equipped to enter the labor market.

Solution

Train 45 youngsters from tribal and lower caste communities on computer skills, English, reproductive health. Inside the office they will be give tasks to gain practical work experience.

Long-Term Impact

Youngsters that are thriving in life function as a role model towards other community members. They show friends and familiy that it is possible to escape a deprived situation and be succesful. Therefore CYDA helps participants but also the community
