We believe in the life-force of partnership and participation with community, organization, civic bodies, corporate, educational and development institutions as well as government to strengthen our cause and upgrade the situation of underprivileged youth and women in India. The entire management and operations of Pipal Tree Foundation is in agreement with our set norms of sustainability, scalability, accountability, transparency, credibility and effectively. There is an imperative need to create adequate employment opportunities for rural as well as urban youth, particularly those below the poverty line. The percentage of population that complete our primary education is 70%, but only less than 10% try to complete a graduation course and above. Almost 97% of individuals in the age bracket of 15–60 years have limited exposure to technical education, which is another indicator of low skills sets among Indians.
According to the occupational profile of India's workforce, 90% of the workforce population is employed in skill-based jobs, most of them do not have any exposure to vocational education or training even though more than half of the seats remain unutilized in
There is a lack of training facilities and skills development in as many as 20 high-growth industries such as logistics, healthcare, construction, hospitality and automobiles. Given this challenge, Pipal Tree Foundation has broadened the scope of its work to include a new focus on sustainable livelihoods programs through its skill development training- part of our comprehensive strategy for enabling low-income Indians to participate in and benefit from the nation's growth.
The Foundation's first steps in its sustainable livelihoods initiative is to strengthen like-minded youth through training in construction industries as there is a huge scope of employment . These trainings are provided them with the specific skills which will help them to get employments which are lucrative and secure their future.
We also focus on the agri allied based livelihood initiatives such as Livestock Development, Sericulture, Food Processing & Holiculture initiatives in the rural parts of India, especially for women.
