Introduction

Education and Skill development are the backbone of a society and is more important when considering India's objective of becoming a knowledge hub of the world. However, delivering quality education and providing appropriate vocational skills has been a challenge in this large country.
Government of India and State Governments have been continuously taking various initiatives to improve the quality in education for the past several years. Some of the key initiatives like SSA, RMSA among many other programs have been making a huge impact in the education sector. However, these initiatives are not enough, as the challenge is huge and not only the government but everyone has to take straight efforts towards reaching quality education and skills to every student in the country. The magnitude and scale of the challenges therefore demand intensive efforts and funds from varied sources other than the government. This will not only result in developing employees for jobs, but also create thinkers, innovators & leaders for the future India. Concurrently, Indian corporate sector has also started playing a big role in improving quality of education. As per government mandate, corporate with at least 5 crore revenue have to devote 2% of its annual revenue to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). That is where corporate can contribute to this worthy cause of providing quality education and skills to the youth in India, and be part of developing the next generation leaders for India.
