There are 36 million unemployed youth in India.
Of these 24 million live in villages and substantial number move to
cities in search of employment. One of the reasons for unemployment
among youth is the significant disconnect between the school education
and the opportunities, skills, and exposure necessary to achieve full
potential and earn livelihood.
Solution: Working at the intersection of education and livelihood,
we create employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for the aspiring
youth. We make the school education practical and relevant by integrating
vocational education as part of the secondary and higher secondary school
curriculum (Grade 9-12) with student age group of 14-18 years.
Current Scale: Focused on working with secondary and higher secondary
school students, currently Lend A Hand India is working across 24 states/UTs
covering 10,000+schools and 1 million+ students.
Partnerships with State Governments: In addition to direct implementation
in the schools, we have entered into partnership with 24 states/UTs
to provide them with technical and project management support to scale
up vocational education in the state. Currently, we are working Andhra
Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Dadra Nagar & Haveli,
Delhi NCT, Diu & Daman, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu
& Kashmir, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Meghalaya,
Nagaland, Odisha, Puducherry, Punjab, Rajasthan, Sikkim, Tamil Nadu,
Telangana & Uttarakhand.
The programs have led to an increase in enrollment, enhancement of academic
performance, reduction in the dropout rate, and higher number of secondary
school graduates opting for technical education.
