Changemakers Program

“Schooling doesn't assure employment but skill does.”
― Amit Kalantri

This is astonishingly and profoundly relevant to the current world scenario.
Unemployment and business closures have been haunting the world for ages. Ironically on the other hand we come across numerous organizations looking for candidates to fill the vacancies but encountering failures even after several desperate attempts and advertisements.
The questions arising in every person’s mind are;
“Why are people unemployed if there are jobs?
“Why are so many dream ventures floundering and failing drastically?
The answer is very simple but needs an intricate understanding. There is no dearth of jobs or business opportunities, there is only a lack of the required skill set or aptitude. Industries need skilled artisans but those available do not match the requirements. Similarly, there are sizeable jobs but the youth lack the competency for the same to ensure productivity.
There is a pressing need to bridge this skill gap by providing hands-on experience through a robust & intensive program. An ecosystem needs to be created in tier 3 & 4 cities and even in villages, where students get maximum practical exposure to become market ready.  The need of the hour is to motivate and train the students on becoming the best even in the worst scenario. Through this strategy, we can not only ensure 100% livelihood (jobs and businesses) for students, but we can also inculcate the young brains to become impactful and be the changemaker
