Acute employment among the youths in rural Northeast India has become a major challenge for socio-economic development of the region. Several reports have highlighted the issue of the high rate of unemployed educated youths in the country yet there are many opportunities and gaps which can be filled to alleviate unemployment through strategic skill training. Improved training and skill development is critical for providing decent employment opportunities to the growing youth population and is necessary to sustain the high growth momentum. Foundation's Skill Development Training programme aims to empower rural youths through improved skills, knowledge, qualifications, so that they can get decent employment in Indi and abroad. We strive to focus on creating opportunities for all to acquire skills especially for youth, women and disadvantaged groups, promoting commitment by all stakeholders and to develop a high quality of skilled work force that can be absorbed in emerging employment market in the country.
PFI Foundation has established a Rural Technology Institute in Northeast India with assistance from IRW Mauritius in Karimganj, Assam. The Institute is driven by a long-term vision of building technical skills and services sector and creating a South Asian regional skill training hub. The Institute is committed to reducing rural people’s poverty level by producing skilled people and help entrepreneurship development.
The Foundation runs two flagship projects funded by National Council for Promotion of Urdu Language (NCPUL) which is an autonomous body under the Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD), Department of Higher Education, Government of India.
