Global Opportunity Youth Initiative

Mapping youth aspirations and their access to opportunities

The study employed a mixed-methods approach to map aspirations of youth groups, challenges they face, their opportunity and digital literacy level, surveyed 730 respondents across 6 blocks and conducted 16 focused group discussions in Ramgarh, Jharkhand. Secondary analysis included opportunity youth estimation, NEET segmentation, analysis of central or state schemes put in place to support the youth along with an employment market analysis.

The project was funded by the Aspen Institute. We worked in close coordination with our partner, the Transform Rural India Foundation (TRIF).
