Generation Unlimited India's strategy and mission is to enable India’s youth and connect them to aspirational work and engage them as active change-makers.

Apply to YuWaah – Generation Unlimited to join a collaborative platform of solution providers for youth in India

India has the world’s largest youth population with 333 million aged between 10 – 24 years who have bold aspirations. However, they face several challenges that stand in the way of their dreams:

1. 50% of students drop-out of school before completing class 101

2. 30% of youth are not in education, employment or training2

3. 93% of the workforce is largely employed in the informal sector3

To truly reap India’s demographic dividend, we need to bring together solutions that enable young people to realise their aspirations.

YuWaah - Generation Unlimited is looking for solutions that connect India’s youth to aspirational work and engage them as active changemakers.
