Annual Report 2014-15
In presnt times Skill development assumes special significance in India as there is a gradual change taking place in the employment scenario of the country. Scarcity of skilled labour remains one of the most pressing problems faced by the small and medium enterprises in the country.
Thus, a holistic approach is required to address the problem of skills shortage in India. India has a huge rural workforce which till date remains untapped. This force can be trained and then integrated into the mainstream economy to bridge the skills gap.
Keeping the above in view, Visan Foundation, besides creating and streamlining new initiatives, undertook and successfully completed the following programmes in 2014-15:
Skills Training for School Dropouts for youth above 18 years
Under the project, we targeted the slum areas, EWS and BPL candidates, who were not able to work due to lack of training, or their family conditions were such that they were forced to drop their studies.
Students were given 08 weeks (240 hrs.) of intensive training under which the covered topics include Personality Development & Soft Skills, Life Skills, Specialised Training – Food and Beverage Service, Preparing for Interview, Financial Literacy, Industrial Visit.
After intense training and personal mentoring, students got Job offers from well known brands and organisations including KFC, Pizza Hut Delivery, Dominos, Dunkin Donuts, Bharti Retail, Dish TV, Smile Foundation, United 21 Hotel, etc.
School Project for students below 18 years
