We had realized much earlier that without knowing the arts and crafts of these businesses youth will not be able to sustain in this field of competition,” said Sandeep Marwah Chancellor of AAFT University and Ambassador of IHRO in a webinar addressing youth of the country.
The World Youth Skills Day is an opportunity for young people, technical and vocational education and training institutions, and public and private sector stakeholders to acknowledge and celebrate the importance of equipping young people with skills for employment, decent work and entrepreneurship.

The COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown measures have led to the worldwide closure of technical and vocational education and training institutions, threatening the continuity of skills development. We are devising new methods of training and have to adopt them till Corona Virus is out of our daily routine exercises,” added Dr. Marwah who is also Patron to IFUNA- Indian Federation of United Nations Associations.
