Skilling the future of India
Out of the 423 million young people in India, every 1 in 3 sits idle. Young people lack social protection, income benefits in case of sickness, and are at risk through inadequate access to universal health care.
Don Bosco Network promotes opportunities for the well-being of young people, without any form of discrimination. Don Bosco Network actively implements different projects to enable youth to become self-reliant and productive citizens.
To improve the employability and earning potential, skill training and job placement assistance was provided to unskilled youth in Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu.
Under this project, 80 unemployed and unskilled youth acquired technical skills to get better job opportunities and placement guidance.
The Don Bosco Network in India comprises of 11 Planning and Development Organisations (PDOs), each dedicated to the development of the Salesian provinces they serve. The Don Bosco network is spread across 29 states and 354 NGOs, reaching more than 10 lakh people.
