A Project Proposal on Enhancing Employability through Basic education and Vocational and Skill Development Training among Tribal Men and Women, Adolescent Girls, and Youth members of various districts and States and plans to start ground work in the fiscal year 2016.
India’s youth faces serious problems of unemployment and underemployment. The causes are legion and include dropping out of high school because of poor or no education, needing to support one’s family at an early age, a lack of information on the job market, and, most importantly, not possessing the basic skills required by employers today. Many youth engage in daily wage work unaware of the opportunities available to them.

Why is Vocational Training worth considering?
Vocational training offers training for specific jobs. Since vocational training often begins in high school, students can graduate prepared to take a high-paying, skilled job immediately. Graduates of trade or vocational schools have an advantage over informally trained job-seekers because an independent organization certifies that they have the skills needed to successfully perform a specific, skilled occupation.
