SDG 4 is focused on Education Goal that aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” wherein Target 4.4 states that by 2030, to substantially increase the number of youth and adults with relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship.
In order to attain this goal, it is critical to provide job-specific skills, along with other life skills required to contribute effectively to workplace and society that focus on developing high-level cognitive and non- cognitive/transferable skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, teamwork, communication skills, and conflict resolution, which can be applied across a variety of occupations.
Our project on skill development focuses on enhancing employability for the less privileged youth in the country. It is geared to sensitize the youth by imparting education, training and developing skills through various youth empowerment initiatives. The beneficiaries not only become financially independent themselves, but are also able to support the educational cost of their siblings and extend considerable support to their families.
The project aims to impart basic IT skills along with English, life skills, soft skills, and financial literacy for a period of three months and thereby provide tools for enhanced employability amongst less privileged youth and young adult beneficiaries.
Help us raise funds for our specific needs.

A big thank you to all those who have donated on this page.
Concern India Foundation was set up in 1991 as a registered non-profit, public charitable trust to extend financial and non-financial support to grassroots level NGOs working in the areas of education, health and community development.
Our motto is to ‘Helping People Help Themselves’ by making the disadvantaged self-reliant and enabling them to lead a life of dignity. This philosophy lays the foundation for our programmes so that they have the buy-in of the entire community and are hence sustainable and effective.
We work with and through grassroot organisations that have passion and purpose, but are strapped for funds. We will help such organisations with not just funding but also capacity building, systems and planning, so that they are able to continue their work even after the duration of our financial support. Over the past 30 years we have strengthened and supported over 1,000 NGO partners across the country through our offices in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Pune.
Our all-embracing approach ensures that through the programmes we support, we reach out to diverse target groups that include children, women, men, the elderly, the disabled, and rural communities from the marginalised sections of society. Our strengths in institution building, management support, monitoring and evaluation make our projects scalable and sustainable.
