The low employability of youth is one of the main factors hampering India’s efforts towards facilitating inclusive growth. More than 50% of India’s population of 1.3 billion is below 25 years of age, and about 65% is below 35 years of age. India’s working age population (aged 15–59 years) numbers 431 million; 29% are illiterate, and 24% have a primary-level education, or below. Only 17% of the labor force is educated to the senior secondary level. It is estimated that 57% of India’s youth suffer from some degree of employability. Surveys show that only 30% of India’s information technology graduates, 25% of engineering graduates, and 15% of finance and accounting professionals are suitable for employment.
Tayyab Trust established many vocational centers in different regions of the country, in which youth are being trained in IT and computers, paramedics, nursing, construction, home decor, tailoring, beautician, and many other industry linked courses.
