Creating Extraordinary Leaders Amongst Youth

Team Vizhi has undertaken extensive study and field research, visiting 35 schools & colleges and reaching out to 15300+ students (Tamil Nadu) in the age group of 17-27 years. The outcomes of the study indicates three main roadblocks contributing to unemployability and skill set deficit – Inequity in awareness, Inequity in access to resources and Inequity in right mentorship. For a girl, additional burden of doubting her capabilities to adapt to combat environment exists. Vizhi addresses this inequities through “DEFENCE AND LEADERSHIP AWAKENING MOVEMENT (DLAM)” by creating a leader within every youth. DLAM's theory of change lies in building essential leadership skills through exposure to defence opportunities and training them with military ethos and values. We believe that, an individual who has had exposure to the extraordinary leadership and commitment of Indian Armed Forces leaves them with skills for life and not just one odd job opportunity. With the guidance of like-minded veterans and educationists of Tamil Nadu, DLAM is a well-crafted, completely volunteer led programme which is implemented in 3 phase model, Awaken – Educate – Empower.
