One of India’s critical developmental needs is the generation of productive and gainful employment to the growing population of rural youth. It is in this context that the country is witnessing multi-pronged initiatives to train the rural and semi-urban youth in relevant trades that will lead to their gainful employment.

Livelihood is a recent but fast growing focus area for Cognizant Foundation. The Foundation has been supporting several initiatives that focus on training youth from the poorer sections of the society with livelihood skills and placement opportunities and enabling them to participate in the country’s economic progress.
