Medha launches Social Impact Report
Medha has been working with students to bridge the gap between education and employment for over five years. Through our unique employability education program, we better prepare youth for life after school by teaching the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to access the job market and succeed in the workplace. The results of this intervention are improved career outcomes and long-lasting personal change.
To better understand the impact our programs are having on the lives of our students, we carried out a social impact assessment with 70 graduates across 5 districts in Eastern Uttar Pradesh. Our objective was to analyze social impact – self-perceived change in the lives of the people with whom we work – and to better understand how these changes came about.
Our results were extremely positive:
- 80% of graduates feel more prepared to get a job
- 95% of graduates reported greater self-confidence and self-efficacy
- 100% of graduates learned skills that will be useful in their lives and professions
