NEW DELHI: Delhi NSS in association with Bsquare Group inaugurated Vocational Training Centre in Mannam International Centre (MIC) at Sector 11, Dwarka, New Delhi, to make women independent and confident.
The centre was inaugurated by PKD Nambiar, MD & CEO, Bsquare Group. The centre is established as a part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes of Bsquare Group, headquartered in New Delhi, a decade old enterprise with business interest in IT, Advertising & Marketing and Ticketing Solutions for large Events.
Speaking on the occasion Nambiar said, “We are glad to announce the inauguration of vocational training centre that helps women to become self-reliant and also we work towards the upliftment of underprivileged section of the society by empowering them through vocational training. The Vision of Bsquare Group’s CSR activities is to make sustainable impact on the human development of under-served communities through initiatives in Education, Health and Livelihoods.
Women are the most affected section of the society when it comes to unemployment and poverty. Without any source of income, they are bound to be dependent on males for every basic requirement. If men are also unemployed, the situation becomes much worse.
Women empowerment through self-reliance and financial independence can be achieved by providing vocational training, through which women can either start up something of their own or take-up a job.
MIC is focusing on women empowerment and it’s a major step towards Skill India Program, which aims to equip women with industry-relevant competencies that will help them in securing a better livelihood. Stitching garments is one of the most sustainable jobs. Further, basic tailoring skills enable women to work from home.
Thus, they can continue their traditional role as a homemaker and yet earn. Tailoring is something, which women can immediately start right from their homes upon completion of their course.
