WF-AID is working to provide young people in India and Pakistan the ability to be self-sufficient and earn a steady income.
WF-AID are committed to empowering communities for long-term solutions, and are now steering the younger generation to a better future with our Micro Finance Schemes.
Our innovative Drive for Change programme provides cars for young drivers so they can start their own taxi business, through Uber, Ola, Careem and other online services that make it easier to get independently started.
The unemployment rate among youth in India and Pakistan is a serious issue. Many young professionals and new graduates with degrees struggle to get work, and those who do are paid a mere $180 per month – working in areas like call centres or in administration. These salary figures are in decline given the great supply of new professionals and the lack of new opportunities that are readily available. Without such opportunities, the financial well-being of our youth and of young families is in decline.
