Many rural areas in India may be few hundred kilometres from a nearest city, but they are many light years away from the opportunities their urban counterparts have. Education & Empowerment are the two major missing links. Prerana identifies deserving rural students, supports education and provides employability skills to empower them to join mainstream workforce. E2E - Education to Employment is the main mantra!
Many students in rural areas are barely able to complete their college education due to economic difficulties. Even if they go to college, their awareness and skills do not commensurate with the demands of today's job requirement. Prerana's E2E program not just provides scholarship support to deserving students, we go further in providing them soft skills and industry skills to prepare them for a gainful employment. Education to Employment (E2E) is the main motto.
First, we identify deserving students based on two criteria - merit and means. After verifying educational achievements, we visit their house to ascertain their economic condition. Secondly, apart from providing financial assistance, we train them in soft skills and industry skills. Most Importantly, we track their progress by way of constantly engaging with them, organising extra-curricular activities and making sure of their overall personality development.
Education to Employment (E2E) is the desired and designed long-term impact. Awareness of opportunities, training for skills, interactions for personality development, and ultimately preparedness for a career not just a job.
