YuWaah! has been bringing together youth representatives from India with businesses, governments, innovators, UN agencies, and civil society organizations since 2019 to strengthen the education and skills of young people in India. The goal is to provide the youth with better opportunities in the job market and to help them start their own businesses. To achieve this, YuWaah! focuses on four areas: Career counseling, life skills, youth engagement and flexible learning.
Since March, UNICEF, Capgemini and the United Nations Global Compact Network India have been supporting the work of YuWaah!. This cooperation will expand YuWaah!’s activities through more local and needs-based training, more internships and apprenticeships, and the promotion of entrepreneurship.
