- India’s economy faces the dual challenge of shortage of trained workforce as well as non-employability of large sections of the youth who possess little or no job skills (National Skill Development Corporation, “Knowledge Hub”)
- Out of the 470 million people of working age in India, only 10% receive any kind of training or access to skilled employment opportunities (The Hindu, “Lack of skills is a greater concern”)
- India lacks sufficient skilled workers as its existing vocational training system does not target informal workforce, which constitutes over 90% of India’s working population (SKOPE, “Shortage of Skilled Workers: A Paradox of the Indian Economy”)
- The unemployment rate has gone up from 4% to 7.6% in the last two years (DownToEarth, “India’s unemployment rate doubled in two years: SoE in Figures”)
India possesses an enormous number of underprivileged people who do not possess the right skills due to lack of education and guidance. Therefore it is important that their energy is channelized effectively with proper training for boosting their economic growth and helping them combat poverty.
Responsenet’s Skill Development program enhances the earning capabilities of the most marginalised sections of society and brings them into the mainstream through quality job-centric training.
The program trains the urban and rural underprivileged youth, women and men to create a pool of self-reliant people who can be functional as skilled manpower in the fast emerging services and retail sectors.
Exposure Visits, Guest Lectures, Personality Development, Soft Skills & Communication sessions as well as Placement Drives are organized to facilitate direct interaction with employers’ representatives.
Responsenet ensures 70% placement of the trained beneficiaries which in turn encourages Entrepreneurial Development.
