YOUTH EMPOWERMENT

AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

Today the minimum wage in the organised sector is $2.50 per day that continues to create a wide inequality concern in the country. (United Nations Development Report, 2018 – Gini Coefficient is 48.8% and ranked 152/187 countries). In order to bridge the gap of inequality it is essential to enhance the skills for workers by creating new opportunities of employment.

Youth struggle to find work and afford basic standards of living. As a result, there’s been a significant move towards urban migration as individuals believe
they will find better opportunities in town and cities. SEI wants to change this mindset and encourage rural development.

SEI enrols young enthusiasts in a skill development program at the assembly plant at Gbadagry Expressway that is spread across 310 acres of land. The incumbent is trained on vehicle assembling and core mechanical skills to either get absorbed within the facility or to start his own road assist services. We believe these programmes help Nigeria and promotes change for communities.

SEI encourages unemployed youth to be a part of the Bajaj Rider Training program which trains them to ride and maintain a three- wheeler and connects them either to fleet owners for getting hired or to micro financers to help them own their own vehicle.

SEI integrated its first batch of women assemblers at the Bajaj CKD assembly plant providing them equal opportunity at par with their male counterparts.
