CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYMENT
Currently 65% of India’s population is under the age of 35 years. It is expected that 250 million young men and women will join the employable workforce within the next 10 years. India’s rapid economic growth demands skilled individuals in all sectors but unemployed youth and shortage of skilled manpower are two ironies that still co-exist in India.
Dharma Bharathi Mission seeks to improve the employment chances of drop-out students or students, who stopped school between the 8th and the 10th Standard. Reasons of dropping out are mainly lack of funds, migration and family conditions.
Through providing high quality training in fields such as tailoring, mehendi, para nursing and beautician, as well as computer courses, students get the chance to improve their skills and therefore find an angle to enter the workforce.
