PSF Scholarship Programme:
India’s unemployment and underemployment problem particularly affects those from lower socio-economic communities. Poor families remain in poverty simply for a lack of skills that could provide access to well paid jobs which employers have difficulty recruiting for. Joining the organized sector provides access to better salaries, cleaner and safer working conditions, fixed hours, job security, career growth and often other benefits such as free transport, healthcare and insurance.
One of the weaknesses of the Indian education system is that it does not give due importance to vocational training. As a result, there is a discrepancy between the need for skilled workers and skilled workers available. Each year, we churn out millions of graduates who do not have the specific skills required by the market. If this trend continues, our economic growth would hurt the long term. To change this first thing we must change our mindset. In India, people are obsessed with attaining a graduation degree and usually top-down training. This has led to a situation there where, on the one hand, it scores of unemployed graduates and on the other hand, there is a huge shortage of skilled workers such as plumbers, electricians, etcOur vision to recognize and promote intellectual excellence & to encourage skills development in young people from disadvantaged communities to begin their careers Foundation launch SAMARTH an Scholarship Programme to provide financial and other assistance to students for their higher education in India.
