Children playing with gay abandon in a public park amidst chatter, cheer and laughter. This is a familiar sight for most of us on a daily basis.

Skill-building is a hot topic around the country. The "Skill India" campaign was launched by the Union government in 2015 and an ambitious goal to train over 40 crore people in different skills by 2022 has been set.

What is needed is the creation of an enabling environment. This new ecosystem needs a suitable policy environment, infrastructure for training, the connectivity and ownership from industry, community and non-profit organisations that can penetrate the communities and find the underserved young men and women. All these factors have to mesh together to effectively deliver high quality skill-building in large numbers. High quality training centres have come up around the country to meet this growing demand.
