Overview of this campaign

Over 15 million Indians enter the workforce every year and the job market becomes more competitive each year. Lack of English language communication skills is a leading cause of unemployment and underemployment. We at STEP aim  to solve this most challenging social and economic problems of our times – upskilling youth in India – specifically by training them to communicate better in English. We hope to leave a lasting impact on all the lives that we touch with this effort and make a major contribution towards improving employability and the skills of Indian youth.
