To address the pinching need for skilled employees in various industries in India and to create employment opportunities for the youth dropping out of school, Pratham Education Foundation started an initiative called Pratham Institute for Literacy, Education and Vocational Training. Pratham Institute (PI) works across the country to provide individuals with employability skills needed to address the India’s growing need for skilled manpower.
Pratham Institute targets students who have dropped out of school or have completed their formal education up to 8th or 10th grade. These youth are forced to drop education mid way to cater to their family and financial needs. Our objective is to facilitate quality and holistic education by spreading awareness, building self confidence in them and empower youth with hands on skills to enable attainment of livelihoods and a way out of poverty.
