The worldwide new development agenda to guide the world will depend largely on the demographic changes taking place over the next 15 years and beyond. These changes will create both opportunities and challenges. One of the biggest challenges will be how to adjust to an unprecedented world population of 8.4 billion by 2030 while also ensuring a more equitable and inclusive pattern of economic growth and sustainable development for all. Globally, the number of young people currently is at an all-time high. This provides a one-time “demographic window of opportunity” before the dependency ratio rises again with the growth of the elderly population; however, it is not automatic or guaranteed that this one-time demographic window of opportunity will actually lead to a “demographic dividend”. It will turn into a demographic dividend only if the country invests heavily now in health, education, skills development, and employment generation, especially for adolescents and youth. Advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment is another key component that requires special attention in Bangladesh. Diksha, a new generation skill development training center emerges with a view of converting the "demographic window of opportunity" into "demographic dividend" through proper training and orientation. A third of Bangladesh’s population is 10-24 years old and 2.2 million young Bangladeshis enter the local and international workforce every year. Diksha comes with a complete package of training, development, and career orientations.IT, Marine, Automobile, Electrical and electronics, RMG, Mechanical, Language, and other training are the core trades that Diksha is currently concentrating on.
