ADS Skills has always worked within the public sector. Our work is especially significant as increasing literacy levels, the inability of cultivation to meet the changing aspirations of young people, a desire to improve the quality of life and the lure of cities are contributing to many young people seeking to migrate away from their villages in search of work. Elsewhere, there is a huge deficit in terms of the availability and quality of people with relevant skills - largely a function of a failed educational system. Amongst those seeking to find jobs are large numbers of young people from low-income families and disadvantaged backgrounds. Engaging with the public sector - state and central governments - provides us with the opportunity to find large scale solutions to the above-mentioned trends and more importantly provide us with the financial incentive to focus on those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
