In 2018, with support from HSBC Skills and Oracle, Alliance India selected seven priority states: Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Bhopal, Rajasthan, Delhi, Punjab and Manipur with the objective of providing skills training and job placement to youth aged 18 to 30 who were affected by HIV. The project aimed at improving employment and income opportunities for this group which would eventually result in increased individual and household incomes, elevation from poverty and resilience to the socioeconomic impact due to HIV and overall improved quality of life.The project partnered with training institutes to provide the training on skills ranging from tally and accounting, beauty, tailoring, electrician and plumbing, electronics repairing, communication in customer care sector etc.
