Our partner works to better prepare India’s youth for life after school. They provide help with employability training, leadership development and career services.

Currently, many students from low- income and rural backgrounds struggle to find quality employment opportunities after graduation, our partner works to address this employability gap.

You will be the fourth AfID volunteer to support this partner. The last volunteer developed a finance management system, created excel templates to create automated management and donor reports from Tally and created a management reporting dashboard.

After some time using the new management reporting system, our partner have requested support reviewing their progress with implementations and help with addressing some errors that have arisen. You will be continuing to develop the reporting system and dashboard. You will also be providing tailored staff training on reporting as needed.

The partner will be able to provide accommodation.
