Enhancing Employability

Started in the year 2012 with three centres, the Skills-for-Market Training or the SMART Program is our flagship employability program. In the first year of existence, it trained 350 youth through various skill development trainings. The program is progressively expanding to provide skill development training to youth across 11 different cities in India. This skill development training program has been able to successfully bridge the gap between the demand and supply in various manufacturing as well as service industries. The Foundation has been implementing the SMART program by establishing a network of Centres and Academies – both directly and through other partner implementing agencies. Know More

We are now an enabling partner for the YuWaah Organization that supports India’s youth by connecting them to aspirational socio-economic opportunities and engaging them as active change makers. Know More

We’ve partnered with Global Mentorship Initiative (GMI) to provide career-focused guidance to our SMART students. This collaboration will help us in creating an ecosystem of opportunity for our students by building their career, confidence and skills. Know more
