BACKGROUND AND DETAILS
The Lighthouses of Pune is a sustainable livelihood program for the urban disadvantaged youth. By fostering Agency and workplace competencies and skills in youth, the Lighthouse unleashes social and economic transformation in the communities that the youth come from.
The manner in which we achieve this is by providing a platform for collaboration among primary stakeholders of the city. It is a public private partnership that empowers the Government, Corporates, NGOs and Citizens to cooperate towards changing lives.
Young adults who enrol in the Lighthouse are from financially adverse communities where skipping from one job to another becomes the norm. The Lighthouse plans to transform ‘an attempting to survive’ outlook to ‘attempting to thrive’ attitude where young people can perceive their aspirations and work towards success in the long haul.
