Challenge

It is estimated that over 75% of the new jobs to be created in India will be 'skill-based'.However, only 20% of the Indian workforce possesses 'marketable skills'. This problem is particularly acute for the large and growing unemployed population in low income communities. ETASHA provides skill based training and placement to youth from marginalised communities.

Solution

Apart from the number of youth trained and placed in jobs, our real achievements relate to changes in mind-set of the young person: From drift to focus From short-term orientation to developing a vision for one's life From "job for money" thinking to planning for a "career for growth and achievement" From low self-confidence and self-perception of "have-not" to thinking in terms of "I can and I will"

Long-Term Impact

The impact of our programs in low-income communities primarily relates to focusing youth away from aimless wandering, potential drug abuse, and crime to becoming trained, employable and employed, bringing in a regular salary which frequently more than doubles the family income. This in turn improves nutrition levels of the whole family and provides for better education of younger siblings, hence improving the overall well-being of the whole family. Gradually community mindset too gets changed.
