About the Programme:
The Education & Livelihood Programme takes into account the challenging realities prevalent in the Shivaji Nagar area, including meager employment opportunities, low skill-sets and poor aspiration among people. With low levels of literacy and higher dependence on informal means of livelihood, achieving gainful employment and sustainable livelihoods is a monumental task. The Programme focuses on the wholesome development of an individual, particularly adolescents, youth and women. It supports them to continue their formal education, encourages them to aspire and facilitates employability, life skills and vocational training. Currently, the focus areas under this programme include capacity building of adolescents, youth and women, promotion of employability and entrepreneurship, and incentivizing volunteerism in the community through sustainable livelihoods.
The Deputy Programme Manager contributes to the overall development of the programme and is responsible for the management of staff and resources involved in rolling out projects under Education and Livelihoods Programme. The Deputy Programme Manager will have the expertise and skills to design and implement projects around education, employability and empowerment with a perspective that is informed by the needs and aspirations of the community and other social rubrics including sustainability and gender.
Duties and Responsibilities include:
Overall Programme management and Implementation
Employability and Livelihoods
