The primary purpose of our mission is to provide poor, less educated youth the opportunity to acquire a skill and build a prospective career.
Continuing with the education is a big challenge for rural youth. Many youth fall under the unorganized sector, embedded with drawbacks like no social security, bonded labour, sexual harassment, etc.
To procure a successful career, youth need support both personally and financially. One of the best option that is available is the vocational skills training. Vocational training allows students to gain practical work skills within a short span of time as well as enhances their employability. For the quarter 155 young students were supported with nutritious lunch and travelling expenses to continue their skill programme without any difficulties.
Coming from a rural background, most of these students are deprived with a healthy nutritious meal, because they cannot afford to buy desired quality of food due to their family’s low purchasing power which adversely affects their health status. To help out these students with improving their health conditions we provide them healthy and nutritious meal during the five working days in a week. A month’s free meals offered to these students’ measures to 440 kilos of rice 80 kilos of grocery including cereals, pulses and other items and 120 kilos of vegetables. This regular intake of food has helped them with a balance diet.
To boost up the students interest in continuing their studies, we motivate them with awards and certificates. Every month the BEST student who excels in areas like regular attendance, academic performance and groomer is selected.
True story :
On completing grade XII, I employed myself in the brick kiln for daily wages, which supported my family needs. However life had completely changed when my family accepted my Evening Study Centre (ECS) tutor’s advice “It was the orientation programme, tutors motivation , support extended by providing a nutritious meal everyday and reimbursement of my travelling (from home to the community centre) helped me to continue the course without difficulties.” says Ashok.
