UNICEF (Yuwaah)

Driven by its mission to deliver results for children, UNICEF has come together with its public and private sector partners to establish the YuWaah,which is a global multi-stakeholder platform that aims to prepare young people to transition to productive work and active citizenship. In India, by 2030 YuWaah aims to:
  •  Build pathways for 100 million young people to aspirational economic opportunities
  •  Facilitate 200 million young people to gain relevant skills for productive lives and the future of work
  •  Partner with 300 million young people as changemakers and create spaces for developing their leadership
The partnership will provide a platform for cooperation between DSEU and UNICEF to leverage the existing mainstreamed initiatives of both parties in select states to co-create and implement solutions at scale to tackle the employment & skilling challenges for adolescents and youth in India, with focus on vulnerable population including youth leaving care institutions, migrant youth, victims of child labour, violence, child marriage and trafficking etc.
