Dr. Ajay Kela quoted extensively in media on ‘World Youth Skills Day’

Quote from Dr. Ajay Kela, President and CEO, Wadhwani Foundations

“In India, and globally, there is an enormous gap between the skills needed by the industry and what academia is producing, resulting in a deep fracture in the talent supply chain. By 2020, almost 60% of India’s population of 1.3 bn will be in the working age group of 15-59 years, if adequately skilled this demographic dividend could make India a global HR powerhouse. To achieve skilling at scale, Wadhwani Foundations is developing multi-media enabled technology solutions while integrating online/in-class skills and self-learning pedagogy that can reach thousands of students simultaneously through the cloud platform.”
