Even as the Indian economy grows in size and global significance, hundreds of millions of people risk being denied their fair share of the benefits of this achievement, because of inadequate skills. If economic growth and development have to be inclusive and equitable, it is imperative that the country focus on skills development for creating livelihoods. But, this alone is not enough. Creating skills is only the first phase of the value chain. Once skills have been created, several complementary factors need to be brought into the process in order to create a sustainable livelihood stream. The 3rd International Summit on SKILL is an attempt to focus attention on four critical areas of this value chain – Skilling, Inclusion, Literacy & Livelihood.
Yuva Parivartan, an initiative of Kherwadi Social Welfare Association, is today's one of the largest movements in the country, imparting vocational training and livelihood skills to under privileged youth in urban, semi urban and rural areas through 100 centres in 16 states. Last year, Yuva Parivartan trained 1,00,000 youth across the country.
An eminent line up of speakers including Dr. Sam Pitroda, Advisor to the Prime Minister of India on Public Information Infrastructure & Innovations via a live video address, Dr. Narendra Jadhav, Member of Planning Commission and Dr. Subir Gokarn, Ex Deputy Governor RBI and representative from World Bank will deliberate on SCALING UP SKILLING for 80% of youth that drop out of schools. The Summit will provide a platform for Government, Industry and the Social Sector to come together on the very important National issue of employability skills for India’s large population of school dropouts. Speaking about the forthcoming Summit, Kishor Kher, President & Trustee, said “We believe that strong collaboration between Industry, Government and the Social Sector can provide an impetus to SCALING UP SKILLING. We look forward to a positive dialogue during the Summit on this much needed collaboration. Together, we can work towards a better tomorrow for India.
