PwC India Collaborates With UNICEF, YuWaah to Upskill 300 Mn Indian Youth

PwC India has announced a strategic collaboration with UNICEF and YuWaah (Generation Unlimited in India) to help bridge the digital gap and help upskill 300 million young people in India over the next 10 years.


Addressing the collaboration, Dr. Yasmin Ali Haque, UNICEF Representative in India, said, “Our collaboration with PwC was informed by what we could see as a key need – the need to listen to young people and ensure they have access to credible information on their choices to fulfill their aspirations. We believe the need is to co-create these solutions with young people.”


Speaking of the collaboration, Neel Ratan, Regional Managing Partner, PwC India said, “While at one level, the pandemic has added momentum to India’s digital story, it has also revealed the glaring digital disconnect that India has to navigate at her grassroots for a major share of its population; its young people. Digital enablement of the young people needs a whole-of-society approach – with Government, Enterprises and Citizens coming together with collective wisdom around a shared vision.”


The programme will act as a catalyst by working with a range of stakeholders, both public and private, on a youth engagement platform aimed at creating a wider impact and equitable opportunities for young people through enhanced employability and earnings potential. It will also provide them with pathways to emerge as active changemakers in society.


This announcement is part of PwC’s global collaboration with UNICEF in support of Generation Unlimited; a multi-sector partnership aimed at helping 1.8 billion young people transition from school to work by 2030.
