Need:

Technology driven industries are demanding efficient and skilled labors to attain maximum productivity. To meet such industry demands, we need to impart specific skills and provide them with such labor. On the other hand, youth in rural and semi urban India left with no options but to dropout due to financial reasons, remain unemployed due to lack of higher education or skills. In order to fulfill the needs of the industry and provide an employment platform to such youth, Pratham Institute started on a mission to provide vocational training to such youth, hence, narrowing the gap of skilled labors in industries.
