Established in 2004, Lend-A-Hand India (LAHI) aims to create better access to education, vocational training and entrepreneurial opportunities for Indian youth. This award builds on the success of LAHI’s previous work on developing an experiential model for teaching employer-relevant skills in secondary schools in Gujarat, and in other states. In 2015, the Government of India’s Ministry of Human Resources Development endorsed this model of a secondary school vocational education, and this final award will provide general operating support to enable LAHI to advocate and leverage public support for the scaling up of the curriculum in multiple states.
