As per the National Census 2011, 69% of the India’s population lives in its villages. Over 55 million of the rural poor are young, between the productive ages of 15 to 35. If they are gainfully employed, they will fuel India’s growth story. According to a FICCI-EY study, by 2020, the world will face a shortage of 47 million workers. India’s rural youth, can become a demographic advantage
If we train the underserved rural youth for employment, we will be able to transform poverty into productivity and aid in the broader economic objectives of the country. Towards this task, we look to our Project Implementation Agencies (PIAs) as our partners in adding effort and innovations leading to quality training and placements, thereby aiding in poverty alleviation. It’s only our partners who can help us convert this demographic opportunity into a demographic dividend
