The large-scale social transformation of a country requires not only sustained action, but also the mobilization of the public, private and development sectors. For that reason, The/Nudge Foundation takes a multifaceted approach to tackling three of India’s pressing challenges: low urban employability across one of the world’s youngest populations, the lack of rural livelihoods and the slow pace of non-profit entrepreneurial innovation. With strong partners, a high-tech approach and the latest learning about the hard, soft and life skills needed to thrive – including linguistic, digital and financial literacy – The/Nudge Foundation has already narrowed the gap between young people’s potential and their access to economic opportunity.
We invest in The/Nudge Foundation as part of LGT Venture Philanthropy’s education strategy to focus on solutions that provide high-quality vocational training to tackle the global learning and employability crisis. We provide comprehensive support across three areas:
urban youth skill trained
urban youth placed
poor and ultra-poor rural families reached
Fellows placed with one state government
We are delighted to partner with LGT Venture Philanthropy to address the complex challenge of skilling and employment of underprivileged youth.
