About Pratham Skilling
At Pratham Skilling, we work across the country to provide individuals with the employability skills needed to address India’s growing need for skilled manpower. Between now and 2025 over 250 million young people are estimated to enter the Indian workforce, while only 5% of youth aged 20-24 have obtained vocational skills through a formal training system. Pratham’s Youth Skilling Program was therefore launched in 2005 with a mission to create sustainable programs for training and retraining of youth for employability or entrepreneurship.
The Beauty Program launched under the Pratham Skilling in November 2011, to encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship. We currently have 16 Hub Beauty Centers across India. The Beauty Program aims at recognizing, supporting and handholding enterprising individuals to upward their own beauty businesses. So far, Pratham has supported more than 6000 entrepreneurs through this initiative.
