Empowering youth with employable skills for sustainable absorption into the beauty, data entry and driving sector, in addition to training in financial and digital literacy.
India’s working age population is estimated to rise by 100 million by 2025, making it the largest contributor to the working population. As much promise as this poses for the world’s youngest populace, limited employable skills and insufficient absorption into the market stifles the ability to escape the cycle of poverty.
Mphasis-Nudge Gurukul was officially launched in November 2015 in collaboration with Nudge Foundation. The Gurukul is a 100-day residential program in Life Management designed to provide 360 degree learning and support experience for young women and men from impoverished communities to master life, literacy and livelihood skills. The training will equip them with employable skills to secure a job and break the cycle of poverty.
Enable 400 underprivileged women and men with employable skills, financial and digital literacy skills between 2015 and 2017.
