Skill Development

As many as 18.3 million indians were unemployed in 2017, and unemployment is projected to increase to 18.9 million by 2019 according to ILO. With an increasing population, out of which 54% is below 25 years of age, bridging the gap between the unskilled youth and the demands of the job market is essential to fight poverty.

The initiatives aim to improve the employability of the working population including school drop-outs, semi-skilled and un-skilled workers. HPPI’s skills training programmes are implemented as integrated componants of livelihood and community development and education projects as well as stand-alone projects. Programmes include basic computer literacy, beautician training, tailoring and handicrafts.Besides providing skills training, HPPI also work to facilitate skills training through linking beneficiaries to external initiatives by NGO’s, companies and the government.
