What we see around us in the fast-growing Indian economy is a veritable paradox. While employment avenues are increasing rapidly, they are not being filled by people with compatible skill-sets. Unemployment, therefore, continues to rise inexorably. The result is perpetuation of poverty, right in the midst of opportunity! Just over a third of the aspirants who enrol in primary school actually reach degree level. The huge pool of school drop-outs thrown up by the system year after year renders itself unfit for sustainable mainstream employment. Don Bosco Tech, also known as Don Bosco Tech addresses this endemic problem with a market-based approach that is sensitive to the socio-economic needs of marginalized youth in the 18-35 years age group. Don Bosco Tech has set up a network of 300+ skill training centres across India that attempts to bridge this widening divide between those who have access to opportunities and those who are increasingly being marginalized from the ‘new economy’ jobs. Don Bosco Tech is an example of synchronous social action of various stakeholders, which aims at mainstreaming and ensuring economic security to youth who could be victimized by poverty. To enable them to gain a foothold in the competitive job market, Don Bosco Tech helps the youth to acquire the required livelihood and soft skills in an environment of learning and mentoring that is responsive to the individual’s emotional and developmental needs.
