Unfortunately, there is often still a mismatch between the skills one learns in school and the ones needed to become successful at a job.
Our partner since 2015, Lend a Hand India set up an internship program in partnership with the state government in Western India that will facilitate 10,000 internships in the coming three years. Interns will be placed in small and micro enterprises close to their homes because studies show that 80% of the jobs in India are in this sector. After completing these internships, they are significantly more likely to find employment; 76% of employers offer the interns a contract.
