It is currently estimated that more than 80% of the youth in our country who are in the working age group or are about to reach the working age group are school drop outs or have not been able to complete basic formal education required to earn a job. A large population of this youth is women.
Unless given vocational skills, they will neither have the competency to work as skilled labor nor will they be able to work for a long duration as casual labor before they tend to fall towards not so desirable habits or lifestyle thus taking them away from being good citizens and developed individuals.
By providing vocational training, we aim to change the less privileged into an asset for themselves, the society and the community they live in. With a focus on women centric programs, we have been able to positively change hundreds of lives where post our certified programs, these women today either run their own small businesses like boutiques or work for other small businesses and thus enjoy a sense of new found confidence and financial independence.
Since 1993 till date, we have successfully run these programs around the villages of Dharuhera, Manesar, Pataudi, Rewari and Bhiwadi in Haryana,
