About Lend-A-Hand India (www.lend-a-hand-india.org)  

Lend A Hand India (LAHI) provides vocational training by way of “work-centric school education” to young boys and girls from high schools in rural  India. Currently, working with government aided high schools in the remote villages in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Goa, LAHI runs a three year job and life skills training program in 61 villages reaching more than 10,000 youth. The program has been formally recognized by government of Maharashtra as part of the curriculum.

 

LAHI recruits local trade practitioners (carpenters, plumbers, electricians, agriculturists etc) to teach trade skills at local high schools for one a day week for three years, making the high school education much more practical and relevant. The impact of this model has been outstanding-- over 25% of the students are now getting admission to much sought after higher technical education, positively impacting attendance, and school drop out rates at the same time empowering girl students as well.
