Nineteen-year-old Jyoti Kumar trudges three kms from her home in a crowded transit camp at Govindpuri to a training centre in south Delhi’s Tughlakabad every day. It’s a long walk but the muggy monsoon afternoons don’t dampen her enthusiasm a whit. Jyoti is one of 15 students attending a skills training course conducted by Empower Pragati, a private sector social enterprise started in 2010 to provide vocational training to economically disadvantaged young Indians. Today’s class is on Spoken English.
