Me to We is Swechha’s Adolescent and Youth Empowerment Programme supported by Empower. It engages adolescent boys and girls from the Jagdamba Camp and nearby area in the age group 10 – 24 years. The programme grew out of a need to understand and address the problems of adolescents living in the community. It supports young boys and girls to progress towards secondary school completion. For a holistic development of the adolescents it also focuses on issues of identity, social efficacy, resourcefulness and employability .ME to WE aims to give the adolescents a sense of direction and the confidence to make their own choices through a planned curriculum using interactive sessions. In order to promote employability amongst the young adults, Me to We organizes job exposure camps and sessions to raise awareness and improve their employability skills.
