There are more than 500 Universities, 20,000 colleges, Hundreds of institutes of higher learning and research bodies. Several lakhs of students awarded with degrees are coming out from the colleges with a lot of hope and faith to achieve successful career in their life.

India Vision 2020 committee has predicted that, there will be ten crore unemployed people in India in the next few years!

Do we have a solution to this national problem?

I.N.D.I.A. Trust, by virtue of its expertise in this field has been providing answers to this issue in various forms.

We have to recognize the basic Indian truth, that strong youth are necessary foundation for the strength and the stability of the country.

One unforgettable lesson has been learnt – if things go well with youth, the nation prospers, when youth falter, the nation fails.

Despite this, the fact remains that India has a large unfinished, ever continuing agenda when it comes to educated youth and their career management.

As a nation, we can make no more important investment. Today young men and women will have to carry a staggering burden. Transforming this will require the best educated and the best trained work force in the Indian history that will give every youth, full opportunity to develop the necessary skills and contribute to the community.

One of the most important contribution of our organization is to build capability towards acquiring employability skills and Entrepreneurship skills.

This is a special programme organized for the youth to participate even more fully in a movement that will radically change their lives and ultimately the nation.

VISION DOCUMENT FOR  I.N.D.I.A TRUST - NGO PARTNERSHIP

PROJECT : N.E.E.D

(NATIONAL   mission   for   EMPLOYABILITY   and ENTREPRENEURSHIP   skills   DEVELOPMENT)

  
NEED is a national level initiative of I.N.D.I.A. TRUST to provide practical solutions to the unemployability problems prevailing in our country.

Thousands of students have already been benefited through this programme. It involves interfacing with all the stakeholders, viz. students, faculty members, parents, colleges, universities, NGOs and corporate sectors.

In recent years, we are faced with the realisation that the availability of requisite Employability and Entrepreneurship skills – in terms of nature, quality and numbers - is beginning to emerge as a major constraint in productively using our available human resource.
 
Our base of skilled and knowledge workers is particularly narrow.

It has been noted at the highest levels that, in order to sustain a high level of economic growth, it is essential to have a reservoir of skilled and trained workforce.

Employability and Entrepreneurship skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economic growth and social development of any country.

Countries with higher and better levels of Employability and Entrepreneurship skills adjust more effectively to the challenges and opportunities of globalization. Shortages have already emerged in a number of sectors.

Large-scale Employability and Entrepreneurship skills development is an imminent imperative.

There is a growing sense that past strategies of Employability and Entrepreneurship skills development are inadequate to deal with contemporary requirements and expectations.

The challenge is not merely of producing more Employability and Entrepreneurship skilled persons needed by the economy.

It is also of ensuring, simultaneously, that Employability and Entrepreneurship  skills  development initiatives also address the needs of the huge population, by providing them with Employability and Entrepreneurship  skills  that will make them Employable and Enterprising.

The challenge of translating benefits of high rate of economic growth into a faster pace of poverty reduction, in other word, inclusive growth, through the generation of productive employment and Enterprising remains formidable, and skill development of persons working in the unorganized sector is a key strategy in that direction.

Planned development of Employability and Entrepreneurship skills must be underpinned by an ‘Action’, which is both comprehensive as well as national in character. Piece meal policies, or policies that do not accommodate or reconcile the perceptions of different stakeholders across the country, cannot serve the goals of national development effectively.

A policy response is needed to guide formulation of Employability and Entrepreneurship skills development strategies and coordinated action by all concerned.

Furthermore, in view of linkages between employment, economic growth and skills, it is important that the policies in the area of skills development be linked to policies in economic, employment and social development arenas.

The country is poised at that moment in history when a much brighter future for its entire people is in its reach. Employability and Entrepreneurship skills development will help actualize this potential. Development and articulation of Action plans on Employability and Entrepreneurship skills development is thus a matter of priority.

The issues and challenges in Employability and Entrepreneurship skills development are many.
These are of:

INVOLVEMENT OF NGOs AND OTHER SOCIAL PARTNERS

NGOs and Other social partners have an important role to play in N.E.E.D (NATIONAL   mission   for   EMPLOYABILITY   and ENTREPRENEURSHIP   skills   DEVELOPMENT).  

They can provide support by way of physical, financial and human resources, sharing of expertise and experience, and, above all, building a conducive environment for, and continued commitment to, skill development.

They can contribute through participation in: identification of competencies, setting competency standards, skill-gap studies, curriculum development, assessment, delivery of training, monitoring and evaluation, and providing work place experience, equipment and trainers, and various incentives to promote Employability and Entrepreneurship skills   development.

Most of all, they provide a touchstone to base skills development initiatives in contextual reality and relevance. Involvement of social partners is thus an important strategy.

Accordingly, the Partnership envisages that:
