Here is the story about an NGO named “MEDHA” . This NGO was established in 2011 with the mission to better prepare youth for life after school . The idea for MEDHA was conceptualized by Mr. Byomkesh sir and Mr. Christopher who first met 10 years ago while working for a microfinance organization in Hyderabad. Though their experience hiring and training youth from disadvantage background in rural Andhra Pradesh , they saw firsthand social and economic impact job creation and employment could have on his country . They planned to one day start a social enterprise that worked to improve employment outcome for similar youth across the country .
Now in 2011 they both lead a financial inclusion project for a global bank foundation , providing capacity building support and training to over 40 NGOs in the North . They got together frequently to discuss there future plans , conduct a comprehensive research report on the employability training industry , and finally in 2011 started MEDHA full-time from Lucknow .

Mission : To better prepare youth for life after school .

MEDHA KOI NAAM NIII PECHAAN HAI MEDHAVIYON KI,
MANJIL KE SAFAR KA JAZBAT HAI MEDHAVIYON KI
KABHI DIL KI JUBA TO KABHI ARMAAN HAI MEDHAVIYON KI,
GIRTE HUE HAUSLE KI UDAAN HAI MEDHAVIYON KI,
KABHI MEDHA KE PAR KUCHAL NA DENA
KYUNKI YE TO HEE JAAN HAI MEDHAVIYON KI

MEDHA believes the current ” skilling ” paradigm in India is flawed . It is currently focused on creating intermediary insitution to bridge the gap between “education and employability” as a process should be incorporated into the education system itself , reducing the need of the students to go beyond the gates of their insitution to build the skills required for gainful employment .
So MEDHA provides many platforms to overcome . As we come out school we all have bookish knowledge no outer world experience . So MEDHA provides that platform that experience that what world is there every student should know that .
MEDHA conducts one-on-one counselling session with students , interact with their parents ,sibling ,and teachers ,connect them with mentors in their field of interest , and support them indefinietly through our alumni network just to name just a few aspects of our program that demonstrate our comprehensive and long term commitment to supporting youth as they make the difficult transition from education to employment.

MEDHA has one core program —
“EMPLOYABILITY EDUCATION FOR YOUTH . WITHIN THIS, WE OFFER THREE CORE PRODUCTS .
⦁ Carrer Advancement Bootcamp (CAB)
⦁ Technical Advancement Bootcamp (TAB)
⦁ Life skills advancement Bootcamp ( LAB).
MEDHA organizes many events that enhances student skills like ” Carrer Chaupal , Rubaru , Atrangi , internship , Placement , Carrer counselling sessions , Day out . So these are some of the major activities in which MEDHA focusses so carrier chaupal student get interacted with mentors who tell them or advice them on there carrer choice . Next and most important part is “Rubaru” basically this is outstation trip in which MEDHA staff select 30 students from every cities where it is running and they are taken into a learning journey in this journey students get to interacted with new friends new ideas new experience of journey . Till now MEDHA has done 8 trips last trip was to IRMA Management institute (Anand , Gujarat) there students were given ideas on enterprenuership that how to do startups how to overcome with financial crisis during startup IRMA Professors guided students guide there. And the best thing is that students just have pay 1000 rupees only and over expense they carry.

RUBARU IS NOT ONLY JOURNEY ITS A NEW THOUGHT

NEW LEARNING NEW EXPERIENCE.

Next if we talk that is Atrangi in it is like function in which student can show there any talent on stage or off stage in which they feel comfortable students use to arrange there stalls dance, sing best atrangi student of the year is awarded . So MEDHA is not an organization its an joyful an experience that cannot be expressed in words . MEDHA also provide internship in which students can get idea that how work is done and if any of the parents don’t feel safe in sending there child in internship (specially girls) then staff convince parents and take complete responsibility of child . And if student is willing to do job they also provide placement . So this is what MEDHA is it has changed thousand of lives and it need to be reached to every student so that every student can overcome with all the difficulties. Many students are taking there stand just because of MEDHA only .
” MEDHA MEANS KNOWING TO YOURSELF IN A BETTER VERSION “
