The Potential Wagon is Arshiya Foundation’s programme for the economic upliftment of marginalized communities through the coaching and unleashing of their innate potential.
Our initiatives under The Potential Wagon include a Skills Development Programme targeted to women, a Financial Inclusion Programme targeted to women and youth, and an Entrepreneurship and Life Skills Training Programme directed toward youth.
With these initiatives we hope to enable marginalized communities to become stronger, more self-reliant and bring them closer to realizing their potential.
To unleash the potential hidden inside every individual through reliance and compassion.
young Indians become age-eligible join the workforce every month. But job growth is only a small percentage of that.
For our Entrepreneurship and Life Skills Training Programme for Youth, we work with our partners to design, create, implement and support initiatives that help youth create and run their own businesses. With this initiative we wish to help marginalized youth create jobs for themselves and others. Along with our partners we provide mentoring and micro-funding to these young entrepreneurs and help them in an ongoing way to create value for themselves and become independent earners.
Our Financial Inclusion programme is designed to train youth groups of marginalized populations to become independent in money management and learn to create and manage bank accounts, financial goals, and family budgets. They also learn about government welfare schemes and methods to access them. The goal of our programme is to help the community become self-sufficient and improve the family’s financial condition.
Indian adults do not adequately understand key financial concepts
Only about 7% of the whole working age population have received vocational training.
Our program is designed to make community women independent and earn their livelihood. The objective of the program is to train women from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and provide them with employable skills, coupled with access to employment and entrepreneurship opportunities.
