Youth (15-24 years) in India constitutes one-fifth of the country’s total population, largest youth population across the globe. To leverage this demographic dividend, India must ensure that its young population is empowered to create a sustainable impact on the country’s future.
We are witnessing disruptions in this sphere that are impacting human capabilities substantially. These interventions are to reduce the quality gap in public and private education; while skilling for more meaningful employability. Technology is both challenging and facilitating the skills that people need: technological knowhow, problem solving, critical-thinking, as well as soft skills such as adaptability and collaboration.
Passionate entrepreneurs are leveraging this opportunity in favour of social tech-innovations, to drive a virtuous cycle of change in the education space. Their effective models and tech driven scalable solutions in the edskill arena are catalysing transformation.
Our SkillEd initiative fosters such tech enabled enterprises that catalyse intelligent solutions for the youth, towards "affordable quality education" for all and “meaningful employable skills”.
