YuWaah, UNICEF, Capgemini and United Nations Global Compact Network India (UNGCNI) entered into a collaboration to work together on providing India’s young people with skillsets that will help empower them for creating their career pathways and enabling them as active changemakers. This initiative will offer a range of opportunities like local demand-based skilling with job matching through quality internships and apprenticeships and promote entrepreneurship.
YuWaah (Generation Unlimited/GenU) is a UNICEF-initiated multi-stakeholder global platform that aims to prepare young people to transition from education and learning to productive work and active citizenship.
The collaboration was announced during a dialogue on ‘Imagining a Sustainable Future for India’s Young People’ by Mr. Ashwin Yardi (CEO of Capgemini in India) and Dr. Yasmin Ali Haque (UNICEF Representative in India). Two young people from YuWaah Young People Action Team set the stage with their aspirations, solutions and challenges during the panel discussion.
Capgemini, UNGCNI and UNICEF will bring their core assets and competencies to further advance the investments and effectiveness of YuWaah’s initiatives for young people. The collaboration aims to co-create solutions at scale with and for young people.
