Project Aalamban (providing livelihood opportunities to millions) - a CSR initiative

COVID19 has immensely impacted the livelihood opportunities for youths and migrants and has forced a large number of reverse migrated youths out of jobs and livelihood ecosystems. While many states of India are gradually bringing in policy interventions to support the reverse-migrated workforce, these interventions are not enough to leverage the demographic dividend that India’s young population offers. While on the other side, many industries and sectors are opening up and many of them are finding it difficult to reach out to potential workforce.  There is an inherent need of bringing the jobs and livelihoods opportunities and related information to the youths in their native areas so that they are able to get a livelihood avenue before they move back to urban areas. ‘Project Aalamban’ by CSRBOX is designed to facilitate this connection between the industries and job-seekers (youths and migrants). 

The project ‘Aalamban’, in its literal meaning, works towards connecting the blue-collar and entry-level white-collar workforce with recruiters or companies in India through a unified AI enabled digital platform. In simple words, it caters to the needs of the work-seekers as well as the opportunity providers, jobs-market or any similar work opportunity market.

To reach out to the deep pockets of communities in states of UP, Bihar and Jharkhand and to identify reverse-migrants (including youths) who are looking for work opportunities, CSRBOX is planning the on-ground implementation of Project ‘Aalamban’. We are looking for collaboration with grass-root organizations who can help us with the profiling of job seeking migrants and youths.  We are inviting proposals from various organizations working with youths and migrant workforce or running various skill training programs.

About Yuva Jobs & Career Facilitation Centers - the initiative of Project Aalamaban

Yuva Jobs & Career Facilitation Centre (YJC) are local units connecting with migrants and youths who are exploring jobs, careers or other livelihood opportunities post-lockdown. These centers will be linked with the Aalamban platform and YuvaBox (Career guidance platform), which are working towards bringing livelihood opportunities for youths and migrants. Aalamban uses artificial intelligence to map skills and preferences of job-seekers and job roles. These centers will help the job-seekers to register themselves on the platform. The YJC will be a single person supported centre to guide youths and coordinate with district level coordinator, known as Yuva Saathi. 

We are looking for organizations to collaborate with us to open these YJC in various parts of India and do the co-branding together for this project. YJCs will focus on connecting with potential candidates (youths) and profile their job or work preferences. These YJC will be set-up in existing office or project building of an NGO or social enterprise.
