Lend-A-Hand India: Making a Difference in the Lives of the Poor through Self-Help. Lend-A-Hand India's mission is to make a difference in the lives of the poor through self-help. By partnering with grassroots non-profit organizations, community groups, and local governments, we create better access to education, vocational training, career development, employment and entrepreneurial opportunities. Our goal is to help the poor realize their full potential to meet their aspirations for a better life.
There are 36 million unemployed people in India. Of these 24 millions live in villages and substantial number leave for cities in search of jobs. One of the reasons for unemployment among youth is the significant disconnect between the school education and the skills needed in the job market. Our program innovation spurs entrepreneurship and creates jobs by making life and job skills training universally available in the government aided high schools, primarily in rural India. Currently covering 10,000 young girls and boys from three states in India, we take the philosophy of "learning by doing" and "work ethics and culture" to rural population and assimilate them with the ongoing economic change in India.
