Empowering the Future with Skills

India is a young country and its future rides on their shoulders. Yet many of these young lives have been impaired with either disabilities or lack of opportunities. Schaeffler India seeks to empower these youth with access to technical skills and experiences necessary to be a productive citizen and part of the workforce of tomorrow.

The project has been developed focusing on establishing demonstrative models for enhanced employability through development of skills and on the job training for formal and informal workplaces.
