Challenge

Young Girls between 18 to 24 years from disadvantaged communities face barriers in joining the formal economy -- lack of quality education, skills, social confidence, communication and language problems and often issues with grooming and etiquette and also parental pressure to marry and keep house, to community pressure to only take 'respectable jobs' and limitations on being allowed to travel 'too far' from the family home.

Solution

Setu shall be offering Courses in Basic IT Skills, Tailoring Skill as well as Health Care skills enabling the first step towards employability. This courses shall enable a respectable, much sought after and prestigious career for such young girls; not only does it provide a decent salary, but also fits in with raising a family and provides her with status in her community. Aim is to skill 1200 young women on an yearly basis .

Long-Term Impact

The Program seeks to achieve the empowerment of the masses by Skilling - illiterate, Semi Literate and Literate Women with focus on Digital Literacy to the under served and unreached. Building IT as an enabler for the grassroots. Building a strong foundation to reap benefits of Information & Communications Technology later in their life. This shall help the Young Women seek employment and provide financial support to their families.
