About the Charity
Antarang Foundation works to bridge the employability gap that exists amongst disadvantaged youth. Antarang Foundation envisions a world where every young person is passionately, productively and positively engaged in a vocation of their choice. Through two career focused programs, CareerAware and CareeReady, they deliver career guidance, develop core employability skills, and finally link students with career opportunities. The CareerAware program works with day and night municipal schools across Mumbai to target students who fall in the crucial 14-17 years age bracket. Through intensive career guidance and career planning sessions, CareerAware encourages teenagers to stay in education until they are 18 years old, thereby enabling them to aspire towards a better future. The CareeReady program is largely run within low-income communities with high numbers of at risk youth as well as some colleges. It is a career readiness and employability skills training program for youth in the age group of 18-25 years.
YVO channelized the donation received for the month of February 2017 towards equipping Antarang Foundation with 17 tablets which will be used by students for all the activities during the course like delivery of content and as digital workbooks. The real time inputs from the tablets will make the trainings more effective and help the mentors to get instant feedback while testing their aptitude for career guidance. "Employment for the Disadvantaged Youth" - These 17 tablets donated with your Rs.300 will every year help impact the lives of about 300 disadvantaged youth belonging to the least privileged sections of society by mentoring them to become self-sufficient.
