A country is as strong as its people, and India’s youth play a pivotal role in shaping our today as well as tomorrow. In fact, the youth are not just an important resource of knowledge building and wealth, but are also responsible for bringing about social changes and progress.
The way we shape the future generations is how we ultimately shape our coming years. The youth are like fresh clay, and can be moulded in any way. From giving the right education to laying a solid foundation based on moral values and ethics, it is essential that we create the right building blocks in order to empower our youth and lead them on the right path to success and enlightenment.
If you look back in time and dig deep into the historical archives of India, you will see that our youth of yesteryears actively participated in the struggle for freedom and served the nation with their courage, bravery and fervor. Today, we may not be struggling for our freedom, but we do have a long way to go in establishing ourselves as a progressive country that goes beyond the ‘third world’ bracket.
Taking this important cue, The Skills Academy, which is an initiative by The Ponty Chadha Foundation has strived to harness the inherent skills and talent in our youth, who belong to the underprivileged sections of society. The sole aim and overarching vision of The Skills Academy is to bridge the gap between the poor and rich, and to build a society that thrives on equal opportunities and rights.
From teaching the youth on how to be efficient security guards to understanding what it takes to ace housekeeping, The Skills Academy does not only equip the students with the required expertise that can help them earn, but also gives them a way of life that can be sustained and improved in times to come.
In today’s day and age, the youth require a wide access to information and opportune moments that can help them thrive. When the youth understand the importance of empowerment, they automatically uplift the society and become the forerunners for positive change. Let us, hence, take a pledge to pave brighter, positive ways for our youth and help India prosper the right way!
