Samajik Suvidha Kendra (Skill)
The accelerated economic growth has increased the demand for skilled manpower that has highlighted the shortage of skilled manpower in the country. For India, the difficulty to fill up the jobs is 48%, which is above the global standard of 34% in 2012. India has a unique 20–25 years window of opportunity called the “demographic dividend.. It is estimated that 50–70 million jobs will be created in India over the next five years and about 75%–90% of these additional employment avenues will require some vocational training. To tap this vast opportunity through these Gender Resource Centers we have been imparting skill training to 200 girls and women in stitching, tailoring and beauty culture in a year. These girls are being trained for 6 months and after getting qualified through a tough examination process designed by Jan Sikshan Sansthan (a government undertaking) they were finally awarded degree and it is well recognized and accepted by gob markets. Till date around 1000 girls and women have been provided skill based training through these Gender Resource Centre and a good numbers of them have been employed and few of them have also started their own small enterprises.
