Samata Careers Centre

We recognise that choosing a career path that corresponds with your interests, goals, and talents can be difficult at times. As a result, we at Samata intends to assist students and offer career advice. Don't worry if you're unsure what you want to do once you finish your studies; some people have a definite path in mind and are already preparing for applications and interviews, while others are somewhere in the middle. The future of work is changing; new employment options that were unthinkable only a few years ago are developing, and post-COVID opportunities are shifting in response to changing economic conditions. Skillsets have become increasingly vital while applying for jobs, and every industry has become more competitive. We've been there before! Yes, indeed! So now we want to assist you, to support you in laying the groundwork for a career that will enable you to handle the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in the years ahead by our initiative Samata Careers which will assist you in navigating your career

Theory of Change

We use an integrated strategy with three elements to enable young people and citizens. First, we aim to increase awareness via our interventions so that people can make well-informed choices about their rights. Second, we aim to foster an atmosphere in which individuals' interests and rights are valued and protected by relevant stakeholders. Third, we aim to assist individuals in gaining access to resources and skills. To do this, we aim to collaborate with organizations that are embedded in and recognize the local cultures as well as the national background. We aim to build young people's capacity to advocate for public policy, governance, community health needs and rights.
