5 Stories Of Change: By The Corporate


India’s populace is immense at 1.21 billion. It is expanding at a rate of 17% and is turning quickly into a worldwide economy. India is one of the most youthful nations on the planet, with the extent of the workforce in the age group of 15-59 years increasing consistently. Be that as it may, by and by, just 2% of the aggregate workforce of India has gone through an aptitude preparation. India has an incredible chance to meet the future demands of the world – India can turn into the overall sourcing center point for a talented workforce. The difficulties for the country get amplified, though, as it needs to connect with a million or more of the workforce-prepared populace while confronting a constantly-expanding movement of work, from agribusiness to assembling and administrations. With the administration propelling various plans to engage this youthful workforce, the difficulties amplify as there is a requirement for a compelling execution of these plans at a grassroot level, with a rise of cooperation from every single partner concerned.

This has lead to the fuss of creating a connected path of different key stakeholders with the aim of facilitating the journey of learning and bridging the gap to the best possible extensions. This is the reason why the key players are contributing to the policy of making a change in the skilling and learning sector of the country. Here are a few of those in detail.

Industry Initiatives

The private sector has been taking various initiatives on its own and in collaboration with the government and international entities to upgrade in-house training facilities, and also to provide training to potential employees to make them job-ready. Many large corporations like Larsen & Toubro, Bharti Group, Hero Group, Maruti, ITC, Infrastructure Leasing & Finance Services Ltd., etc., have established training facilities that offer world-class training programs that create an environment of e-learning and innovation. What follows are the 5 CSR stories of renowned industries that take an initiative in skilling India. Continue reading “5 Stories Of Change: By The Corporate”

The Real Scenario: What NGO Faces?

Limitation is criticism that leads to innovation

The group of children with sharp memory who can achieve big if trained, but are deprived of learning and education; they heard about a school opening in the village who not only teaches but gives chocolates on daily basis. Excited to attend school, to experience education; but Alas! They were restricted and the door of the school remained closed permanently. Did NGO fail again?

The time, when government and the society fail to deliver ensured human rights, people or an individual with the understanding of the matter, experience and observation, and the determination of contributing to the society join in setting up an agenda and that’s how NGOs are born.

The real scenario!

Remember how in your class when you knew the answer asked by your teacher but couldn’t stand up and answer because there were a bunch of classmates demotivating you? or maybe you were not confident enough?
Criticism and problems will never leave your back, no matter what you do or where you go, if you are in the process of being changed or making change for others you have your back filled with it.

Same is the case of Ngo’s, the Nonprofit organization, that aims and focus towards substantial development of each creature, driving through its propaganda, on both small and large-scale development is also the dupe in the loop of criticism limitations and problems!

Industries, NGO’s & The Government: The Connecting Dots

The huge chain of networks that exists in everyone’s life is bound by a pattern of dots – the dots to connect different relations, different emotions, different choices, and different preferences, which come together to complete you as a person of unique identity.

Not beating around the bush, let’s understand the concept of dots! The learning process in India has always been complex, where there is an idea of a network, but lack of implementation. The need for change requires this idea to transform into a well-defined concept, tagged as an ecosystem, where the dots are the key stakeholders, each of them placed at different positions with different sets of responsibilities that can have completely different reactions in the building of a new, sustainable ecosystem, if connected in the correct pattern.

It’s not always about the goal, sometimes it’s about the role!

Only the roads to a successful journey can lead to the correct destination. And remember, learning is always a journey – but who facilitates this path? Our key stakeholder!

The ecosystem we work towards achieving has different components with a unique set of responsibilities, which, in a flow of network, can contribute to the most effective learning system. If we be specific and list out their roles, they go as follows:

  • The NGOs focus on skill-development and livelihood-creation by creating entrepreneurial opportunities for the students. While adopting the neglected segments of the society, NGOs endeavor to encourage community participation to the optimal extent, both in planning and implementation, to contribute to the strong network of learning.
  • With the necessary resources and expertise in various domains in the sector, corporates have started taking initiatives by training and building skills in-house. The private sector can also strengthen skill-development by contributing to governance through national committees or other institutional arrangements. They can help identify the demand for skills, feed into curricula development, and deliver monitoring and evaluation activities as well.
  • Government agencies work towards the development of various programs and schemes. With schemes like Make in India, Skill India, Kaushal Vikas Yojna, etc., the government is ensuring a qualitative change by means of thorough implementation that can help the country’s economy, service delivery, and technology improvement.
  • Training partners hold a very important role as they provide skill-specific training and capacity-building to the students.

There is nothing wrong with change if it is in the right direction.

An Igniter Of Fire For Peace

A boy standing at a distance watching the school, and the children, all dressed in grey and white, with cheerful and content faces, moving toward the building of success. With a deep sigh, the boy continued selling the balloon in the corner of the street. Has god not been unfair?

63% of Indian population is still uneducated either due to lack of availability or because of the financial crisis, and guess what! this is not the only issue to deal with. There’s this huge gap in the society that needs to be filled before it’s too late. Someone needs to be the change, to see the change

Some might say, an initiator might not be a winner but is a game changer. It would not be unlikely to say NGOs are the real game changers of the society-the society, that not only does need guidance but a thorough assistance and acceptance.

When we talk about the key changers or initiators engaged in the upliftment of the youth, and ultimately society, there comes in mind about few extremely prominent NGOs who have made it their motive to help society and uplift each individual life that remains underprivileged.

The concept of change!

You plant a tree and might not get time to take care of it because you are already caught up in your other works and eventually the plant dies, imagine about a helping hand which takes up a responsibility to take care of not just your plant, but many other such plants which are care deprived. Unable to get through? The tree is the underprivileged division of the public and the assistance is the Ngo. Which in nutshell entireties up as it’s a hand that backs support and inspires through lawful and physical rights for the improvement of itself and the society.

Some NGOs have even contributed to policy-making on critical issues. With pen reach in the sector in terms of accountability, transparency, and ability to address equity concerns they are regarded as the choice and voice of the people. In the end, they seem to be groups of individuals organized for multiple reasons that include human aspirations, their betterment and the area of interest that prevails over the search for the common good. While they remain key players in the development arena globally, they have the favorable view by the international community.

“We are all like the bright moon, we still have our darker side”

Like the two sides of the coin, NGOs too have a darker side. Undoubtedly, they have been playing a proactive role in protecting and upholding the society and the democratic values of the country. However, many NGOs in India have come under the red scanner and their functioning must be seen with suspicion. This is major because of loss of credibility and lack of accountability with NGOs in India. Although this is not true with all the NGOs, it is certainly true that the red spot is on many NGOs across various regions in the country.

“The fire is always bright and clean”

Hence to conclude, the bright light with burning flames that’s illuminates the darkness of the society in terms of education, poverty, rights, and upliftment has an eclipse too. Thus, it becomes our duty to make sure that the brighter one is supported and the dark rests in disdain where the ratio of brightness over powers the darkness, helping to choose the right and to the betterment of the Nation.
